Razor's Edge Leadership
Offices of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement (SLCE) and Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement want NSU student organizations to thrive and grow. Student organizations are the heart of the university and have a significant impact on the student experience at NSU.
SLCE utilizes the following competencies based on the National Association of Campus Activities student organization competencies in our support for student organizations.
Here are a few ways that SLCE supports student organizations:
Before the start of each academic year, Student Leadership and Civic Engagement along with Campus Life and Student Engagement together host a training program for all student organization leaders. RSO training is mandatory for all student organizations.
This provides the student leaders with a time to develop leadership skills needed to effectively lead a student organization, learn more about the policies and procedures, and develop a network of other student leaders within the Inter Organization Council (IOC).
Each August prior to school starting, the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement in conjunction with the Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement host Registered Student Organization (RSO) Training. The goal of the training is to provide RSO leaders with the resources to have a successful year with their organization. For those student organizations that form after RSO training, they will work closely with staff in the Campus Life and Student Engagement for training and support for their new organization!
For more information, please visit the Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement's website.
Being a student leader can be a tough job! Between the demands of academics, athletics, friends, family, and work, leading a student organization can be a challenge! The office offers individual consultations for student leaders as you need help or advice navigating your role as a leader. Please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (954) 262-7195 to set up an appointment with a staff member.
The Student Leadership Awards Program takes place annually during the winter semester. The awards program recognizes exceptional achievements and service on the campus and in the community. The Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement honors individual and organization efforts of building and improving our university community through leadership and service.
Each year, the award recommendation process begins in early March and concludes at the Awards Program in April. We encourage faculty, staff, and students to nominate individuals they believe have impacted our campus.
