SCMIS partners with student-run Menstrual Product Initiative
Student Case Management and Intervention Services (SCMIS) is partnering with the student-run Menstrual Product Initiative. The goal of the program, funded this year by SCMIS and Belonging and Community Justice (BCJ), is to reduce stress for Emory students by providing them with free menstrual products, which many college students cannot afford. The initiative, which conducted a distribution out of the SCMIS office on Sunday, reflects Emory students' entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to community engagement. The Menstrual Product Initiative continues to accept donations of unopened packages of pads, tampons and menstrual cups. For more details, contact SCMIS case manager Amanda Trubetskoy.

High school debate and America's toxic national discourse
As part of a new content initiative, Newsweek is partnering with the National Association for Urban Debate Leagues (NAUDL), a nonprofit that promotes debate programs in largely underserved public schools in 22 metropolitan areas. “Emory’s Atlanta Urban Debate League (AUDL) was the first league in the NAUDL network, which now includes more than 20 leagues nationwide,” explains James Roland, executive director of CCE at Emory and a NAUDL board member. “Many students come to Emory because of the AUDL and many of our interns have participated in one of the NAUDL's other leagues.” View video.
The rise of the sober college student
Drinking remains widespread on campuses, and other substances are only becoming more popular. Still, students who choose sobriety are facing less social shame and judgment than in years past. That’s great news for administrators who have long worked toward this end. But now they must figure out how to help students lead fulfilling social lives without alcohol — a substance which, like it or not, is entangled with many colleges’ bottom lines.
