Mizzou StudentCPT (CPT) is a student-run ethics organization.  The purpose of CPT is to raise the awareness of ethical dilemmas students will face once they enter their profession while building key leadership skills.  The organization provides students with an opportunity to develop and apply ethical business practices and ethical leadership skills.  It also provides students with the opportunity to socialize and network with a diverse group of students and professionals.  Finally, the organization helps promote a positive focus on students and faculty who exhibit ethical leadership at Mizzou.  Undergraduate and graduate students of any major are welcome to attend our meetings and become members of CPT.  No minimum GPA is required.  The cost to join CPT is $10 per school year.  We hold two or three meetings per semester, and we participate in at least one volunteer service project each year.  If you would like additional information about our CPT organization, please contact Elise Bartley at

Tax Club

Tax Club is a student-run club for both the tax-committed and the tax-curious. The club serves three primary purposes. First, the club introduces students to what the practice of tax is really like in a fun and informative environment, seeking to dispel some of the common misconceptions about tax. Second, the club provides a forum for tax-inclined students to network with one another to create lasting relationships that will mutually benefit each other’s careers. Third, students have the opportunity to connect with Mizzou alumni working in the tax field to expand their professional network. During the course of the academic year, events sponsored by Tax Club include informative and interactive meetings with guest speakers, and social networking events. Students in their sophomore through graduate years and all Mizzou alumnus are welcome to attend Tax Club events.
