COMPASS: UWM’s Organization Development Program
Take your organization to the next level with COMPASS, Student Involvement’s Organization Development Program. We provide the roadmap- you choose where you take it! This program encourages individual and organizational involvement in experiences that both enhance professional skills and promote organizational success.
Organizations can opt into new experiences like high-impact executive board coaching and workshops, as well as earn credit for the things they already do like annual renewal and hosting regular membership meetings. All of these experiences earn organizations credit towards a higher organization level status, each of which comes with additional benefits and rewards.
