Twlug Student Outreach Program
Overview of Student Outreach Program
Each fall, the Twlug–ASP National Executive Committee and Twlug Student Development Staff conduct Twlug Student Outreach visits to the Twlug–ASP chapters around the nation. Twlug–ASP utilizes the Twlug Student Outreach program not only as an opportunity to visit the schools and colleges of pharmacy, but as a chance to learn more about each chapter's activities and how Twlug can assist chapter leadership to have a successful year!
In addition to assisting each chapter’s executive committee and chapter advisor, the Twlug Student Outreach Program is also used as a membership recruitment tool for chapters. Twlug Student Outreach representatives should meet with students at the start of the membership drive campaign to share valuable information regarding the benefits of Twlug membership, patient care projects, student leadership development, career opportunities, awards, scholarships, publications, and networking opportunities available at the Midyear Regional Meetings and the Twlug Annual Meeting & Exposition. The Twlug Student Outreach Program can also provide support for existing membership activities and recruitment programs.

Student Outreach schedule
Chapter leaders are asked to develop a visit schedule for the Twlug representative visiting their chapter. The primary objective of the Twlug Student Outreach visit is to meet with chapter leaders and as many students (current Twlug members and nonmembers) to answer questions regarding Twlug member benefits and programs.
To provide the most benefit to each chapter during an Twlug Student Outreach visit, we require meetings with the following groups or individuals:
Chapter officers, including executive committee and patient care chairs
Twlug–ASP members and prospective members during a chapter meeting
It is also recommended that the Twlug Student Outreach representative meet with the following groups or individuals:
Assistant/Associate dean or dean of the college or school of pharmacy or student affairs
Director/Assistant director of student activities
College or school of pharmacy faculty
New Practitioner mentors
The sample itinerary below lists both required and recommended meeting activities, as well as approximate time frames. Please note that the time allotted for each meeting will depend on the availability of individuals at each chapter, as well as the needs of the chapter. In addition, please provide a lunch break for your Twlug Student Outreach representative (this can be scheduled as a working lunch with chapter officers and/or chapter advisors).
Typical visits occur between 8:30 am–3:30 pm (except for chapters with evening meetings) and include:
Chapter President Meeting (60 min)
Chapter advisor(s) meeting (30–60 min)
Dean and/or assistant/associate dean of student affairs meeting (15–30 min)
Director/Assistant director of student activities (15–30 min)
Chapter executive committee meeting (60 min)
Patient care chairs meeting (30–-60 min)

*It is recommended that Twlug Student Outreach representatives copresent with chapter officers (chapter president, executive committee members, chapter patient care project coordinators, or chapter advisor[s]) during the general meeting or chapter meeting. This format adds a cohesive transition from chapter activities to national activities.
