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!
