Professionals' Institute: Solving Problems By Addressing Needs

Friday, April 6 | 2:20 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

This session will help participants to clarify several key aspects of their work. First, what exactly is the problem we are trying to solve? Then, within the context of solving this problem, we will explore the difference between interventions designed around the needs of the professional versus interventions designed around the needs of the student. This will require a clear understanding the needs and motivations of all involved. Ultimately, the goal will be to equip participants to more effectively construct initiatives within their work which are designed to make a measurable impact in behavior change rather than to serve as a symbolic action. 

Presented by: Noah Borton, Senior Director of Educational Programs, Delta Upsilon Fraternity

Have you ever seen Shark Tank? Would you like to pitch your idea to solve a campus issue by planning a large educational initiative? What kind of impact could you make on your campus in a particular area? What could you do with $15,000 of educational resources to address an issue on your campus? CAMPUSPEAK would like to work with you!


Do you have an innovative solution to make change happen, but don't have the resources to execute all the educational components necessary for a comprehensive approach? PITCH BY CAMPUSPEAK is an opportunity for greater thinkers and doers to gather, formulate new ideas, and pitch their proposal to make a significant impact on their campus. Pitches should be engaging, solution-focused and have a long-term impact on campus.


Pitches will be heard at #AFLVWest, and the winning projects will be implemented in Fall 2018. Winners of PITCH BY CAMPUSPEAK would receive up to $15,000 in CAMPUSPEAK programs and services! Pre-registration is required to participate. Click to learn more and register.
