Registered Student Organization leaders make a difference at the University of Washington and the student government strives to serve and empower RSO’s. On November 23rd, ASUW hosted the first Husky Leadership Retreat where RSO leaders were invited to come together and learn more about the following:
- Collaboration – The primary purpose of this time is to have a space for RSO leaders to come together and build relationships. There are over 800 RSO’s here on campus and many of the leaders in these RSO’s do not know one another. This retreat will provide that time and space for RSO leaders to put a face to a name, brainstorm collaborative events and network among UW leaders.
- Campus Resources – There are a great deal of resources for RSO’s that students do not know of. We want to take this time to showcase the various resources on this campus that these students qualify for.
- Leadership Development – In order to further leadership development, we will have various speakers from the University of Washington and the greater Seattle community. We will focus on UW alumni who were RSO leaders at their time at the University of Washington and how that leadership impacts them today.
Both Josh Chen and Benny Tran, UW Lambda Phi Epsilon’s External Vice President and Internal Vice President, partook in the discourse of the retreat and shared their perspectives as members of an Asian American interest fraternity. Chen and Tran further cultivated relations with other Asian and Asian American groups within the Asian Student Commission and have opened channels for future collaboration with these leaders and their constituents.
