What are the purpose and goal(s) of your organization, and how has it met or exceeded those goals?

The purpose and goals of our organization were to spread diversity and involve Vietnamese traditions and culture throughout the year. We have exceeded said goals through our event participants that also included students who were and were not from Vietnamese backgrounds. Coming from an HBCU, we strived to include all minorities and make everyone feel welcomed.

Address how your organization was outstanding in the following areas: recruitment, marketing, outreach to campus community, use of resources, officer training and event planning.

We doubled in size in our organization and throughout the year, had more interest in recruiting not only general members but executive help as well. Our organization became more well known through our various events and we have collaborated with different organizations among Xavier’s campus. Our use of resources always came to our favor because we had connections with career services.

How did the organization work together to maximize strengths and overcome weaknesses?

We worked together to overcome financial issues and even though we had limited resources, we never gave up on our ideas and had other options/ ideas to compensate for said lack of resources.

Provide specific examples of how the student group demonstrated growth and development in the 2018-2019 academic year.

Our active member count doubled and improved our social media presence and theme aesthetic. We also grew out of our comfort zone to give more unique ideas to the general public and make ourselves known in the community, especially with our Date Auction 2018 choice of “The Great Depression”. (much unique, very wow)
