The Office of Student Life offers a variety of workshops for student organization members in order to help keep them informed and well-trained. These workshops are developed with the goal of being short, high-impact training sessions in order to maximize their value to student organization members, and are offered on a wide variety of dates and times for your convenience.

This semester, workshops are directed towards helping your organization elect its new board, teach them the ropes, and prepare for the transition to next school year!

  • Running Elections is designed to teach you how to ethically and efficiently run elections for your next executive board, and how to have fun while you’re at it!
  • Keep Calm and Carry On is centered on promoting self-care and running your organization in ways that minimize stress for you and your members!
  • Climb Your Mountain is meant to serve as a collaborative opportunity for student organizations to discuss challenges facing them. Have a new program you’d like to hold but not sure how, or need to raise money but don’t know how to get it? Bring any issues your organization has and we’ll solve them together.
  • Passing the Baton is all about how to make sure your organization makes a clean and easy transition form this year to the next one. Don’t make your new executive board start from a blank slate!
  • Pack Up Your Orgsync is meant to help your organization make a seamless move from Orgsync to Grand Valley’s new organization management system. Bring your laptop, and we’ll make sure you don’t have any trouble with the move!
