The Office of Student Affairs promotes Random Acts of Kindness Week Feb. 14-18, not only to promote kindness, but also to denounce random acts of violence and cyber bullying. Throughout the week, the division will collect donations to help Albuquerque's homeless population, through a donation drive for the Albuquerque Rescue Mission and Cuidando Los Niños.

Along with the donation bins, Student Affairs Directors and staff will be on hand at the SUB during the week opening doors for students and passing out encouraging words and quotes.

To report a random act of kindness, send the story to Dorene DiNaro. OSA will post stories and recognize these individuals on its Student Affairs Random Acts of Kindness website.
