Mission of the 117th Class
We, the Knights of the 117th Class of The Society of Innocents, will uphold and champion the pillars of superior academic achievement, unparalleled leadership, and selfless service.
To achieve these values, we will foster an atmosphere of inclusion and integrity on campus and within our Society, strive for authenticity, and preserve the traditions of classes before us.
We are not thirteen. We are one. Our unique experiences will strengthen us as a whole. Where we lack, we will seek perspectives outside of ourselves.
We believe each student on campus should be seen and supported in every aspect of their identity. We will make an intentional effort to create a more equitable and inclusive campus environment.
We act with reverence for the history that comes before us and understand that it is our duty to preserve traditions of the Society, the University, and the state of Nebraska. We also recognize that we must honor the past by encouraging progress.
The Knights of the 117th Class recognize that this organization is uniquely Nebraskan, and we will strive to uphold its ideals.
