Community Service & Outreach
"CoSIDA Cares" Web page
During 2008-09, the CoSIDA Goodwill Committee created a new slogan of “CoSIDA Cares”
to complement the committee’s new mission statement:
The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Goodwill Committee strives to leave a positive mark on the communities we visit during our annual convention. Our focus is to involve our colleagues in the importance of giving back and how they can help their own communities year round.
To help promote the CoSIDA Goodwill Committee and the fantastic service projects that take place locally and nationally on college campuses across the country, this web page will help to bring notice to these initiatives and to make sure CoSIDA members are aware of upcoming service and/or fundraising events that they may want to promote or participate in on their respective campuses.
“We view this as a great resource for all CoSIDA members to use in the future. We will work with CoSIDA Director of External Affairs Barb Kowal to keep the site up-to-date with information and contact numbers and addresses for various goodwill initiatives that a lot of college campuses partake in each and every year,” said Sam Atkinson of Gallaudet, Chair of the Goodwill Committee. “This page will also showcase the progress the Goodwill Committee is making to demonstrate ‘CoSIDA Cares’ about the convention host city each and every year and to show the importance we all have in giving back to our local communities.”
