Student organizations can request assistance from the associate dean of students for leadership and developmental training and workshops.
These “Programs in a Box” are designed to help the organizations grow closer together as a group and learn to work better together.
There are four programs offered:
-“Bystander Intervention Training,” which is to educate students on how to prevent various types of violence that can be introduced in an environment where alcohol is being used;
-“Conflict Resolution,” which is about learning how to successfully problem-solve with other people;
-“True Colors,” a personality assessment and how to work with other people who have a different personality than yourself, and
-“Strategic Team Building,” which is composed of team building exercises.
Levi Harrel, assistant director of student development, said the training could benefit any organization on campus.
“We felt like there could be a need for this on campus and we were looking to see if there was a way to make these types of programs available to more students,” he said.
“Any program who needs to can come and talk to us and we can customize a program for them. We also think this is a great way to showcase student development.”
The programs are open to any on-campus organization looking for a presenter to facilitate a leadership development workshop.
Elaine Weatherby, acting junior, said she’d like to learn more about what the workshops are like.
“I think that this is a really good idea. I’m curious if they could do a sample of what this would be like on the quad so more students can hear about it,” she said.
For more information on the workshops students can visit okcu.edu/students/leadership/workshops or email Harrel at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lesley Black, associate dean of students, at email@example.com.
Harrel and Black organized the G.O. OCU event last month. The event, also known as Get Organized OCU, was a half-day student leadership conference focused on developing personal leadership.
