CHAPTERS IN ACTION – NEBRASKA DELTA CHAPTER AT WAYNE STATE COLLEGE

Wayne State

The Nebraska Delta Chapter at Wayne State College had a busy fall.  During the semester the chapter sponsored or co-sponsored a number of activities including:

  • A very successful Book and Bake Sale fundraiser ($600 raised, $200 of which was given immediately to the local food pantry). 
  • An informational workshop to help students apply for graduate school.
  • A featured speaker at the Nebraska Undergraduate Sociology Symposium.
  • A voter registration drive on campus (the chapter registered a two-day total of 212 students, shattering the record of 93 they set in fall of 2014). 
  • An annual "Festival of Trees" charity fundraiser (the chapter raised $500, every dime of which went to the "Gifts for Kids" program run by one of the chapter's past presidents who has established an organization that purchases gifts for local children who otherwise wouldn't receive anything over the holidays).

The Nebraska Delta chapter is sponsored by Randy Bertolas, Ph.D., Professor of Geography and Chair of the Department of History, Politics, and Geography and Jean Karlen, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus at Wayne State College and Past President of the Board of Trustees of Pi Gamma Mu.

GerberDr. Charles Derber, a Professor of Sociology at Boston College, was a featured speaker at The 49th Annual Nebraska Undergraduate Sociological Symposium.  With the support of Pi Gamma Mu through a $300 Lectureship Grant, the Nebraska Delta Chapter sponsored the session called, "The Wilding of America".  As a public sociologist, Dr. Derber advocates for widely-accessible scholarship that can empower citizens to seek social justice.  He argues that the economic and cultural power of global corporations, which are increasingly melding with the hegemonic power of the American government—coupled with the crises of global capitalism and global climate change—are creating integrated crises.  Dr. Derber asserts that new visions and political movements are needed to offer alternative solutions.
