More than 150 students, faculty and staff gathered in the PACCAR Atrium to support the "Lend a Leg" campaign on April 4.
Participants, including Albers Dean Joe Phillips, pictured in the foreground, rolled up a pant leg in solidarity to honor landmine survivors, call attention to the issue of landmines and their devastating effects throughout the world and urge decision-makers to take action.
Since the International Land Mine Treaty was initiated 14 years ago, 165 nations have signed on; 36 countries, including the United States, have yet to sign the treaty.
The cause is near and dear to SU. Tun Channareth, a leading voice in the campaign against landmines, received an honorary doctoral degree at Seattle University's graduate commencement ceremony in 2011.
SU's participation in the "Lend a Leg" effort was coordinated by Albers student groups.
