VUCA Workshop Series
We have created a series of virtual workshops to assist students in leading their student organizations through various changing environments. We have heard from students that they are unsure how to maintain their student organization's work under our current off-campus status. We want to help them maximize the learning that exists under these unique circumstances. To do this, we have adopted a concept from the Army War College called VUCA. This concept has been tailored to our student organizations, and I hope it is useful. Our students need the help of student organizations to stay engaged with the campus and each other. Let's remain Matador Strong in any environment!

Let's explore Cultural Humility and some tools to use in combination with this model that can help you become an extraordinary leader of diverse groups.
This session is essential to your campus recognition. In this session we will discuss the critical social distancing guidelines established by the university as it relates to student organizations, MataSync and why it is an important tool for student organizations, where to go to learn about AS funding, and our new online event request process.
