Child Life Student Association
This group is intended to bring together the students at CMU who
are interested in, or are actively pursuing a career in the child life
specialist profession. The purpose is to collaborate and share
information, thoughts, and ideas. We participate in volunteer, fundraiser,
and social activities on- and off-campus that enhance our knowledge
of children and families. We also network with professionals within the
Child Life profession.

Family Relations Council (FRC)
The Family Relations Council provides opportunities for individuals interested in all aspects of family life. They work together on issues relevant to marriage and family life, and influence social action. FRC is affiliated with the National Council of Family Relations (NCFR).
This organization is focused on professional development, service, and philanthropy. We have participated in The March of Dimes, Family Fun Fairs, and helped serve at the Pow Wow. This year we are hoping to broaden the group and incorporate more areas of community service.
