SMU stationery now available via online order

Stock image of SMU stationerySMU schools, departments and offices can now order updated letterhead, envelopes, notepads and business cards online, through the SMU stationery store operated by Marfield Corporate Stationery.

Following the conclusion of The Second Century Celebration and the finale of The Second Century Campaign, the University began to phase out use of the “SMU Unbridled 100” logo. This also gave the Office of Integrated Marketing the opportunity to incorporate the SMU tag line, “World Changers Shaped Here,” into more of the University’s identity materials, including stationery.

Other changes are more subtle. The most prominent is that on several styles of business cards, while all of the individual’s information is printed on the front of the card, many schools have added the school website and social media information to the back. The University continues to offer a “two-sided” card for those who include more individual information than can fit on one side of the card, such as departmental websites and social media accounts.

Marfield will continue to update the online store over the next several weeks so that all of the preview functionality for center and institute stationery reflects the new designs. Any stock ordered through the site from this point forward will have the updated look.

Integrated Marketing confirms that all individuals and offices may use up existing stationery stock, with or without the “SMU Unbridled 100” logo.

SMU Alternative Breaks offers 20 trips during 2014-15

10511497_696268393814394_2995925763323181267_oIn 1988, SMU’s first alternative break trips traveled to a Brownsville refugee camp and a New Orleans soup kitchen. Founded the year before, the program provided an opportunity for students to perform community service during their time off.

This year, SMU Alternative Breaks offers 20 trips during fall, winter, spring and summer breaks – an all-time high.

Alternative Breaks (AB) is a student organization providing direct community service opportunities during every academic break. Performing service alongside reputable non-profit organizations, the AB program takes students, faculty and staff to communities in-need both domestically and internationally. Participants have the opportunity to do quality service, gain education about important social issues and reflect on how they can create positive social change.

During Fall Break 2014 (Oct. 11-14), AB offered six trips where students participated in various community service initiatives throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Sarah Day, a senior communications major in Meadows School of the Arts, participated in the San Antonio trip during her October break. Sarah addressed issues of food availability and access by working directly with individuals and families.

On each trip you learn so much about different social issues and because of the way AB places students into groups, you also get to experience a diversity of opinions from all over campus. Each time I come away with 10 new friends that I otherwise wouldn’t have had, and it has been cool to work with them to make a difference in the Dallas community once we come back,” shared Day.

Due to increased participant applications, AB added a third Winter Break trip for the first time. During the upcoming Winter Break students can travel to Austin, Ecuador or Puerto Rico.

Additionally, there are 11 domestic and international AB trips offered during Spring Break from March 8-14, 2015. These include trips to Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Washington, D.C., Costa Rica, Missouri, Louisiana, Georgia, New York and Texas.

For more information on any of these trips or to find the Alternative Breaks application, visit the SMU Alternative Breaks webpage.

SMU’s Center for Presidential History presents ‘Ronald Reagan and the Struggle Over Apartheid’ Sept. 17, 2014

BwjF4ZXCEAAqvAlIn 1986, anti-apartheid leader Archbishop Desmond Tutu announced that Ronald Reagan would be “judged harshly by history” for vetoing economic sanctions against the apartheid regime in South Africa. Despite significant pressure from American citizens to act strongly against the racist regime, Reagan’s administration insisted on a policy of “constructive engagement.”

During this American struggle over apartheid, the largest national upsurge of campus civil disobedience occurred since the 1960s. This explosion of activism in support of southern African liberation movements enabled Congress to override Reagan’s veto and impose sanctions with the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act.

As part of the Presidential Forum lecture series, the SMU Center for Presidential History presents “Ronald Reagan and the Struggle Over Apartheid.” Co-sponsored by the Dedman College Interdisciplinary Institute’s Seminar “Global Africa: Between Intervention and Engagement,” the event will feature a discussion between two distinguished guests:

Rozell W. "Prexy" Nesbitt and Dr. Piero Gleijeses

Rozell W. “Prexy” Nesbitt and Dr. Piero Gleijeses

Rozell W. “Prexy” Nesbitt is an educator and speaker on Africa, foreign policy and racism, and an activist in the anti-apartheid movement in the United States.

Piero Gleijeses is a professor at Johns Hopkins University, and one of the leading scholars of the global Cold War and the struggle over apartheid.

The event will take place Wednesday, Sept. 17 from 5-7 p.m. in the McCord Auditorium.
