Project Deliverable #0: Choosing and Confirming Your Client5 points

Due Friday, January 29 @ 11:55pm ET

Overview

One of our class projects asks you to look inward to be able to tell your own story. This project asks you to look outward and find an organization on campus that has a story to tell about itself, either as a whole or about a portion of its service.

To start this process, you will need to identify that organization and confirm that its leadership is willing to consult with you throughout the term.

Steps to Complete Deliverable #0

  1. Choose a team leader or representative.
  2. Select an organization from the campus. None of your team members may be in the leadership of that group. Each organization will be unique in the class. If multiple teams choose the same one, the first team notifying me wins and others must select again. You may find the list at https://www.wlu.edu/student-life/student-activities/clubs-and-organizations to be helpful.

    The following organizations may NOT be chosen because they were used last term:

    1. Bead the Change
    2. Contact Committee
    3. Legendary Eats (downtown restaurant)
    4. Pre-Health Club
    5. Queer Liberation Alliance
    6. College Democrats & Republicans
  3. Contact the organization to confirm their interest in participating. If they are NOT, your team should select another organization. Otherwise use the materials read and discussed in class to guide the following:
    1. Clearly inform the group that this page is NOT a promise of work for their organization but rather an academic assignment using them for context and content. That said, when complete, the page may be handed off to the organization for their use, if the team members agree to do so. If the organization has any questions, their leadership may contact me directly.
  4. The team leader/representative should post the name of the group to the Canvas course under Project Deliverable #0.
