Volunteers Needed for The Great LSS Race 

The Great LSS Race is a fast-paced competition during which teams use their Lean Six Sigma (LSS) knowledge to improve a real campus busines process. For the first time we're taking it virtual! We're looking for help in the following roles: video editor, Zoom room monitor, LSS expert and more.

If interested, visit the Competition page (and scroll down a bit to view volunteer needs). The signup deadline is April 12.
