SPACE program blasting off at Richland

OSLE or the Office of Student Life and Engagement is in the process of creating a new organization that will be known as SPACE, or the Student Programs and Campus Engagements team.
SPACE will have multiple goals and jobs, but most importantly, it’s a way for students to create events and activities for the student populace on campus.
Dara Eason and Jonathan White, coordinators of OSLE, will be taking up the role of advisers for SPACE, working with the student leaders to make sure that activities remain appropriate, safe and up to speed on any regulations from Dallas College.
Eason is hoping to get SPACE started by the Fall 2024 semester and so recruitment will be key in the coming months.
“I think we’re going to have our interest forms almost immediately, or as quickly as possible,” Eason said.
In terms of diversity, both advisers are dedicated to making sure that all students can be represented not only in SPACE’s leadership but the events and activities that are planned. “We want to make sure we get a good representation because this is one of the most international-heavy campuses.”
Because students are going to be leading the organization and planning events, Eason said it’s important to remember that there are some rules that will still need to be followed.
“We’ve got stuff that’s coming down from the top that has to be done, and then there’s stuff that we want to allow so we want you guys to grow as a team. So as an adviser role, our main goal is going to be to have that structure set up for students, so they can be creative and successful.”
“But also, I mean, it’s a safe way to experiment with things because you’ve got a whole support team. We’re gonna be a lot more involved initially, and then as they become more proficient, we’ll be able to step back and let them do more,” Eason added.
For any students who may be interested in being a part of SPACE, Eason is available in E040 to talk more about what SPACE is all about, and to give students sign-up forms.
