External Dev (2)

What is the purpose of this branch?

In the External Development branch, we work to engage a community of South Asian students at USC through professional development and cultural events. We also collaborate with the Internal Development branch in developing funding ideas to support member-specific workshops and activities throughout the academic year.


What are our top three goals for this spring semester?

1. We will support a more inclusive SC Project RISHI through different cultural events, professional events, and fundraisers that opens doors for new possibilities

2. We will collaborate with CE directors and chairs alike to create fresh and exciting events for the entire USC community.

3. We will promote collaboration across all South Asian RSOs to grow our community even more.
