SOLID Workshop Series

The Student Organization Leaders Intentional Development (SOLID) program is an initiative to ensure that you, as student organization leaders, are properly equipped to lead your groups successfully and utilize all of the resources available. The goals of SOLID are to:

  • help your student organization(s) achieve its goals
  • develop your leadership knowledge and skills
  • ensure that you are aware of university policies and resources
  • promote responsibility, respect, and positive experiences through student organizations

SOLID workshops provide organization leaders with information on the policies and requirements associated with student groups on campus, an in-depth overview of UConntact, and effective strategies and suggestions specific to each Student Leader position.
