Student Organization Outreach & Involvement Experience


SOOIE has 2 main parts- Outreach and Involvement Outreach: SOOIE members go out to different RSOs to work with them to help them be more successful. This could involve facilitating team builders, consulting with the RSO, or leading a workshop or retreat. For instance, if an RSO is having trouble with recruiting new members, SOOIE members would be able to work with the RSO to develop a plan for them. Involvement: With a university as large as the University of Arkansas, new students may feel lost when they arrive. SOOIE members will help any new and/or un-involved students find an RSO that meets their interests. SOOIE will host an involvement table on a regular basis, and students can sign up for one-on-one appointments with SOOIE members to find an RSO. SOOIE is also responsible for the Leadership Development Lunches (formerly Officer Development Series). These lunches focus on student leadership development for RSO officers. SOOIE will host these workshops that occur twice a month and cover a variety of topics related to RSO's. A complete schedule of lunches is available.
