Operations Staff Application

Operations Staff Applications

Every year, OU students volunteer with The Big Event on one big day of service to serve jobsites in our community who can use our help. Members of the Operations Staff serve as the liaisons between OU and the community. Students will interact directly with people and jobsites in the greater OKC area throughout the spring semester to ensure they are prepared for the big day. Serving on Operations Staff is a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community, meet new people, and become a part of something bigger than yourself!

What makes The Big Event so big? Over 6,000 OU students, faculty, and staff volunteers. Almost 160 jobsites in a 40-mile radius. A budget exceeding $40,000. Ladders, shovels, and paintbrushes to supply a small army. This is all in one BIG service filled day!

The Big Event is OU’s official day of community service and the largest student event on campus— and the largest community service event in the state of Oklahoma. As a member of The Big Event Executive Team, you will be responsible for the planning and execution of the 18th annual Big Event. This is one of the most respected groups of student leaders on our campus, and relative to the size of the event, one of the smallest, which means a great deal of work--- all contributing to a challenging and ultimately rewarding experience.
