AWSM’s pilot launch of student chapters during the 2011-12 college year turned out to be a big success, as Oklahoma State and Michigan State built thriving organizations. And thanks to those charter programs, more universities and schools across the nation are starting up their own AWSM chapters today.
The student chapters will be called “AWSM@(school name)”, and will be official campus organizations that will be student-led with guidance from the university’s faculty adviser and the national AWSM leadership.
The student chapters will be stakeholders, with members being part of AWSM’s national organization. Serving as student chapter coordinators for the 2013-14 school year are Gina Mizell and Stacy Bauman.
