CPT Launches Two New StudentCPT Chapters
In September, the CPT welcomed two new schools into the StudentCPT family. The CPT staff is excited to work with student leaders at Truman State University (Kirksville, MO) and the University of Mount Olive (Mount Olive, NC). The CPT is grateful to Barton Baldwin and others who helped generate support for the establishment of these chapters. The support of these individuals and organizations helps make a lasting ethical impact on campuses and communities alike.
