An OTM or Of The Month is a way to recognize outstanding programs and individuals within residence life. Not only do OTMs recognize an amazing person or program at your school, it also lets other schools across the nation read how wonderful they are and even create similar outstanding programs at their schools!
Making people feel appreciated and supported will encourage them to continue going above-and-beyond, and will inspire them to do even more in the future. Lack of recognition can lead to negative leadership in the future my making people feel unappreciated and unsupported. Recognition will help the quality of leadership grow with no boundaries. In addition, writing an OTM is not very time consuming and has tons of benefits!
To start writing an OTM, you must first choose your candidate, whether it be a person or program. Think about the past month and think about what went extraordinarily well or who went above and beyond. If you need help brainstorming, ASK OTHERS!
