What People Are Saying
|Allie Gardner - Chair, Associated Students of Madison 2011-2012
"The SET Project's training and support were extremely valuable to the Associated Students of Madison during our organization's Recruitment Drive. Their staff's expertise in grassroots organizing skills draws on years of experience through action. Their Recruitment Training here at UW-Madison, combined with ongoing individual consultation with ASM members throughout our Recruitment Drive, helped us get over 150 students to our Fall Kick-Off Meeting!"
|Jay Gage, President, Student Association of Michigan 2011-2012
"As a new State Student Association, SAM (the Student Association of Michigan) has benefited greatly from our work with the SET Project. We first partnered with the SET Project on a campaign to respond to cuts to our state's higher education budget. The SET Project's staff came in having done a ton of research into Michigan's political lay of the land; their training on messaging and lobbying was incredibly useful; and their ongoing consultation with us helped us successfully organize a rally and lobby day in Lansing with over 300 students! Since then, the SET Project has continued to be a constant resource as we advocate for Michigan students and continue to build our organization."
|Ethan Senack - External Affairs Chair, University of Connecticut Undergraduate Student Government 2011-2012
"The best thing about the SET Project's training is that it teaches your SGA to act. Instead of just talking about problems, SET trainers showed our members how to move towards concrete, achievable solutions."
|Daniel Thomas - Chair, Ohio Student Government Association 2011-2012
"The staff at the SET project are energetic, knowledgeable, and passionate about the success of each organization. I strongly recommend anyone looking to build a stronger organization to work with SET."
|Sammy Pisano - SGA President, University of North Carolina Wilmington 2011-2012
"Our training with the Student Empowerment Training Project was an excellent way to kick off the new year for the Student Government Association at UNC Wilmington. SET helped us identify issues on our campus and create a process for addressing them so that we can advocate on behalf of our fellow students. Since our training, I have been impressed to see so many passionate members work on their projects and I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish over the course of this next semester."
|Alex Dickson - SGA Vice President, Harrisburg Area Community College 2010-2011
"Having had the opportunity to work with the SET Project, I have noticed a great improvement in the way our student government has pulled together as a team. The workshops and planning sessions were especially helpful for our SGA, and the SET Project provided effective ways for our senators to communicate productively with each other throughout the training. Speaking on behalf of the entire SGA, we are thrilled to continue working with SET to provide training opportunities for our student government."
|Blake Gibson - Chairman, Associated Students of Colorado 2007-2008
"The SET Project has been essential in establishing the Associated Students of Colorado. Without their expertise in training and development, we would not have been as successful in establishing a state student association in Colorado. Thanks to their work with us, students in Colorado enjoy an ever-increasing level of advocacy, representation, and services on higher education issues. With such large challenges looming in the future for higher education in Colorado, the SET Project is helping ASC fight for a secure future for students."
|Serena Unrein - Acting Executive Director, Arizona Students' Association 2006-2009
"The SET Project has been a tremendous resource for ASA. They developed and held trainings specifically for ASA's student leadership and staff, trainings instrumental to our organizational development this year. Thanks to help from the SET Project, ASA won an additional $5 million in financial aid funding this year!"
|Laura Simolaris - Director of National Youth Engagement, Harvard Institute of Politics
"The SET Project and Student PIRGs ran the 2006 voter mobilization training for our national network of student and administrative leaders. Their approach – sharing their considerable experience while allowing and encouraging active participation – was very helpful for our network. We were so impressed we are inviting them back this spring."
