Workshop Abstract: STEP projects may involve several activities, multiple faculty and University staff, pre-college and college students, and external agencies and organizations. Implementing, managing and assessing project elements are difficult tasks that often require support from across a campus. Managing your STEP project also requires strong organizational and leadership skills. The goal of this workshop will be to support project management skills through a review of standard university offices/services and their relevance to your project; considerations for working with external agencies; and strategies to increase organizational skills and effectiveness.
