Workshops for Student Organizations

Getting your Organization Involved with the Community 

Volunteering. Long-term service. Alternative Breaks. Philanthropy. There are so many ways for your organization to connect with the local community.  Come discuss the ways your organization can make an impact. Workshops can be tailored to your specific organization.

Identifying Service

This workshop is an excellent resource for student organizations (particularly Greek chapters) who want to know, “what is service vs. philanthropy?” Facilitators will guide your organization through an activity using real-world examples collected from the Hub and ComMUnity Connect to determine the strengths of both service and philanthropy, and how the two can work together to build a stronger community!

Leadership & Social Change: Making an impact

This workshop helps student organizations develop leadership skills by providing real time models and practices to organizations. In this workshop, students identify their common purposes as an organization and develop an action plan using the Social Change Model of Leadership.

Voter Registration and Census Education

Are you and your student organization interested in civic engagement? If you're looking for information about holding a voter registration drive or want to learn more about the 2020 Census, this workshop is for you! A member of RedHawks Count, our peer educators, will come to your organization and explain the ins and outs of voter registration and general information about the census!  

Student Leadership Challenge

Based on the popular Student Leadership Challenge, this workshop will walk your student organization through leadership lessons - your organization will come out with a better idea of how to work together towards your goals!

Developing Service-Based Reflection 

Are you a student leader? Maybe you're the service chair of your organization and you're thinking about how you can do more! If your organization focuses on service, we can help! This workshop will help your organization reflect on the service they do and will help your members work with communities to deepen your impact. We can help you prepare outcomes, reflection materials and questions.
