The office of Student Conduct and Community Standards is looking for bright young students to join the Academic Integrity and Student Conduct hearing boards. This is an opportunity to gain community service hours and make a lasting impact at Wichita State.

Along with the training to be an active and engaged board member, members will help create the future of what these boards look like.

Serving on the Academic Integrity Committee or Student Conduct Board will allow students to meet and work with faculty and staff at WSU, engage with peers and broaden their networks. Interested students can sign up here.

Those interested in joining or who have questions can reach out to Liz Thornton at

Are you a first- or second-generation immigrant student? Counseling and Prevention Services (CAPS) is conducting a study to explore college students’ experiences as first- or second-generation immigrants through in-person group discussion.

The purpose of the study is to understand how we can increase mental health resources for immigrant college students.

Once student consent is obtained, students will be provided an e-mail in which a location will be provided for the group discussion. The discussion will take approximately 45-60 minutes. Participants must be at least 18 years old, must identify as either first generation (i.e., I was born in another country) or second generation student (i.e., one of my parents was born in another country), and must be able to read English

Shocker Support Locker

An SGA Survey found that one in three WSU students admitted to skipping a meal because they could not afford it. The Shocker Support Locker (SSL) aims to fix that. This donation-based food pantry provides free toiletries and food to any WSU student, staff, or faculty on a weekly basis.

So far this semester, the SSL has given out an excess of 3,000 pounds of food to more than 750 people, and we need your help to get our shelves stocked.

Our most popular items include rice, pasta, fresh produce, canned tuna and chicken, soap, razors, toothpaste, other hygiene products, and culturally based foods.
