SILC Workshops

SILC is excited to offer presentations by request to student organizations and campus departments looking to learn more about services available to them through SILC and KU. Our current presentations are listed below, but we welcome recommendations to craft additional information upon your request. We hope you find information you’re excited to learn more about!

Our Offerings

Learn how to use social media to advance your organization’s presence to both current members and beyond with tips on creating campaigns for your events and recruitment plans.

Learn to use Rock Chalk Central's partner apps for contactless attendance tracking for your organization events.

Each new group of rising leaders offers the chance to take the organization to the next level. SILC wants to help your organization have a great elections season and successful transitions, so your new leaders are confident and ready to go day one.

Interested in hosting a new type of event for the first time or wanting to better your current planning process? SILC would be happy to have specific details ready for the size and scale of your organization to help you best highlight your event.

Constitutions can be a tricky document to navigate and change as your organization grows and evolves. We would be happy to talk through your organization’s specific constitution and how to add new positions and process to help you out.

Are you planning an event for all and are curious about opportunities for funding? Are you interested in learning more about setting up a bank account or a KU-operated financial management system? We would be happy to share resources available to assist you in funding your event or managing your organization's finances. Please note that all organizations requesting funding for events must be open to all KU students.

There is an element of risk in everything that a student organization does, from hosting events to preparing food and everything in between. Conflict is inevitable in every organization. As a leader of a student organization, you have the responsibility to make sure that your organization knows of the different types of risk and actively works to mitigate them at all functions, and to mediate conflicts that may arise among members of your organization. Schedule our Risk and Conflict Management workshop to better understand the risk of managing a student organization, what successful conflict mediation looks like, and how to be prepared for both situations!

Want a snapshot of all of SILC's workshops at one time? SILC Organization Mini Training is for you! This workshop will give a brief overview of all of our workshops in one so that you don't miss out on any information!

Please note, this is not a full training regarding any of our workshops, rather an overview of the important information from all of them. If you would like an in-depth training on any of our other workshop topics, please schedule a presentation for that specific workshop instead.

Interested in learning more about the Student Involvement & Leadership Center (SILC)? Curious to learn more about support for student organizations and non-traditional students? Sign up for our SILC Services & Support presentation! We'll discuss how SILC oversees and support 500+ student organizations at KU through administration and leadership programming, as well as the events and opportunities available to non-traditional students through our office.

Getting Involved @ KU discusses the opportunities that Jayhawks have to get involved in a variety of activities across campus. From student organizations to Student Senate and everything in between, there are lots of ways to get involved and make the most of the college experience. Sign up for this workshop to have SPOT present to your group about how to Get Involved @ KU!

Please note, this workshop is designed for campus departments hosting groups of students learning about how to get involved at KU for the first time.
