Dean of Students

Organizations and teams should design educational programs and activities for new members or teammates that focus on the mission, purpose, and function of the organization or team.  If an activity doesn't reflect favorably on the reason the group exists then another activity should be used. Commitment and dedication to the group's values and purposes will come from actually engaging in activities that promote those values and purposes.
