Fall Leadership Series

Keynote - October 3rd, 2020 


Workshop sessions throughout the Fall 2020 semester

The theme of the 2020 series is “Looking Beyond Zoom: Leading with Versatility & Resilience.”  

On Saturday, October 3, our keynote speaker, Tawan Perry, will speak about "Leading Through Crisis and Transition” via Zoom. Instead of doing breakout workshops that same day, we will be spreading those workshops out throughout the fall 2020 semester.  Four topical areas of need will serve as the foundation for our workshops: Leadership & Advocacy, Inclusive Leadership, Building a Virtual Community, Navigating Politics as a Student Leader

Tiny TSOs

September 19th, 2020 

October 16th, 2020

November Cancelled

Spring dates TBD

Thwing Study Over is the perfect break from studying as you prepare for finals every fall and spring semester. Whether you're completing your first year or your fourth year, you won't find a tradition with more food, fun, and friends before final exams than you will here! 

Although the Fall 2020 semester might look a little different, TSO is still committed to making sure students both on and off campus have a chance to relax a little in between the hustle and bustle of class work and extracurricular activities. Every month the committee is planning "Tiny TSOs" involving giveaways, some prepackaged food, and other entertainment.

Risk Management Ongoing

The Office of Student Activities & Leadership supports the planning and execution of student events. To that end, there are times when events may take on a higher level of risk due to certain factors. Members of the staff are trained and able to assist students in reducing the amount of risk within their event. 

If you'd like to schedule a risk management meeting to discuss a specific event or general concerns for your student organization, please do so here: risk management appointment calendar

In addition to personalized risk management consultations, SA&L offers Risk Manager training to student organization leaders at least twice a semester to review policies and procedures for high risk events. 

For the Fall 2020 semester, if your organization is planning on hosting an event, please fill out the Operations Programming Plan form at least two weeks before your event.

CampusGroups Ongoing

Looking for something else? Check out the CWRU student engagement platform, CampusGroups. CampusGroups offers students the ability to search for groups based on their interest and register for events.
