The Degradation of Student Organization

Authored by Johnny "Slin_K" Brownlee

Across the nation our student organizations are struggling and student governments are struggling. Many seem to be on their last leg, past their prime, etc. Organizations don't have the activism and sacrifice of students from the 60's and 70's, drive of the 80's, urgency of the 90's or money and participation of organizations form the early 2000's. We seek to see if it's a generational issue, leadership issue or are other factors the problem. We examine 6 sinister problems that are costing student organizations funding, stability, sustainability, etc. We're often taught how to be good leaders, but never how to run good organizations, revive them or save them from peril.
