Build a Delicious Sundae Together

RD’s, AD’s, CSM’s and student leaders can collaborate fruitfully on discerning vision for New Student Outreach (NSO). As you have conversations up and down the line you might discover that your plans have complete overlap with your vision and goals. Or you may make a sundae of a variety of flavors that coordinate well together. Both are fantastic!

Who begins the planning process? You can decide. In some regions, the RD begins the planning process first. In other regions, it is just the opposite. The goal of cascading plans is to have important conversations all the way up and down the line.
