Power of Students

Our team of Crim Center interns are in the final stages of planning Power of Students, a yearly student organized conference used to discuss pressing issues in the GSU community and to celebrate the students in our spaces.

Our theme for 2016 is POSI+ (Power of Students Institute) where we seek to gather the heads of student organizations from all parts of campus to have an honest conversation about the issues facing our campus to cultivate a desire for action and change.

POSI+ will take place on October 20, 2016 from 4- 7 PM in The Senate Salon (Room 110C – Student Center East). The Institute experience will consist of interactive activities, dinner, round table discussions, and most of all interaction with organizations that usually do not find themselves in the same location.

Our hope is that through having these hard conversations, we will break down the barriers that divide us to build a true community that can serve as an example for the city of Atlanta and the University in all capacities—domestic and abroad.

For more information on POSI+ please contact one of our Interns listed below
