In line with our mission of community outreach, this past semester Director of Public Affairs, Josh Grizzle, created and implemented a new outreach campaign to educate the student body on the Code of Conduct. The Puzzle Piece Campaign featured 14 human-sized puzzle pieces that were dispersed around high-traffic areas on campus. Each puzzle piece represented one of the 14 conduct regulations and had a brief riddle or clue on what regulation it represented. The puzzle pieces also featured a Twitter feed that tweeted educational information daily about the various conduct regulations. The overall purpose of the Puzzle Piece Campaign was to showcase that all students are puzzle pieces within the greater community of the University of Georgia. If a student were to break one of the conduct regulations, they would become a missing piece of the puzzle that would negatively affect the greater community as whole.
The mystery of the campaign captured the interest of the student body as they tried to determine what the puzzle pieces actually meant and what organization was behind them. At the end of October, the Director of Public Affairs held a week of tabling events in various places around campus. During tabling, University Judiciary set up tables with the puzzle pieces in populated areas to attract further attention and interest. Members then spoke with students as they walked by on the purpose of the educational campaign, as well as the purpose of University Judiciary as a whole.
As a result of the campaign, University Judiciary hopes that students became more aware of their rights and responsibilities within the Code of Conduct. The pilot of this campaign was successful in reaching the student population and also served as one of the first campaigns Judiciary has implemented to educate the entire student body on the Code of Conduct. We look forward to using this campaign as a stepping-stone for increased outreach and awareness efforts in years to come.
