Calls to Action

Autism Speaks

This guest post is written by Omar Kasim, the Vice President of Philanthropy for Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) at the University of Arkansas.  The fraternity is involved with Autism Speaks U, an initiative of Autism Speaks that  is designed to support college students, faculty and staff in their awareness, advocacy and fundraising efforts.
