Transitioning an organization is one of the most important things a leader can do for their group. Proper transitioning ensures that the organization can continue to operate successfully from year to year with little to no interruption in achieving organizational goals.
All recognition and transition paperwork is kept year-to-year in the student events Access database and can be accessed by current organization leaders through the Office of Student Engagement.
