About Us

The Daun Kendig Memorial Bone Marrow Donor Drive was held on April 28, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Atwood Memorial Center Cascade Room.  The Bone Marrow Drive at SCSU is organized by Comm Club and the Communication Studies Department.


St. Cloud State won the 2007 National Marrow Donor Program Collegiate Award for the Department's work with the Daun Kendig Bone Marrow Drive. The National Marrow Donor Program presents this award to a college that exemplifies a high level of commitment in raising awareness, recruiting donors and supporting the life-saving work of the program. Over 1,000 people have been enrolled in this drive and at least 7 have actually served as donors. 

Comm Club won the SIFE/Target "Best On-campus Community Service Project" for the Bone Marrow Drive. They were recognized at the Excellence in Leadership Award banquet on April 25, 2007 and received $250.

  2. We maintain a working environment within the department that respects the tensions between individual professional pursuits and departmental needs and goals.
