In the Manhattan area, Mortar Board hosts Reading is Leading, an event designed to create a fun and active learning environment for young learners to become more involved in reading and writing. Mortar Board sponsors and partners with other student organizations to serve with many other service events that directly benefit the Manhattan community. In addition to service activities, Mortar Board members benefit from professional development opportunities hosted throughout the academic year.
