Helping your organization find its purpose within your campus community by remembering why it began in the first place.

Are your groups doing the same activities and hosting the same events year after year? Sometimes what is seen as a “tradition” doesn’t line up with the purpose, values and goals student organizations. They just end up being yearly events because it’s always been that way. Before you talk about what you do, you need to focus on why you do it. If members thought about the legacy they are leaving or the impact their organization is having on the community, would it stand out? Or, could they be more intentional with their actions? 

The Finding Your Why interactive workshop is a way for members from different organizations to examine their individual groups as part of the whole community. Participants will find the value that each organization brings to the table while examining the relevancy of each group. In addition, participants will begin to understand what role stakeholders play in their organization and how stakeholder relations can advance the purpose of their group while developing actionable goals to move their community forward.

If anyone questions why certain clubs or groups even exist, or what can make them stand out, this workshop is perfect for you. Let our facilitators start the conversation that will propel your students, activities and organizations forward.
