(Developing Administrative Abilities and Resources through the Synergistic Training of Organizational Competencies)
Rider University’s executive skill-building organization where students learn and practice strategies to maximize their personal and professional effectiveness.

DAARSTOC is a unique organization designed to help students build a collection of personal and professional skills. In weekly meetings and regular workshops, DAARSTOC students learn and develop strategies for many organizational competencies including:

  • Interpersonal communication
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Problem solving
  • Stress Management
  • Interviewing
  • Public Speaking

Rather than using guest speakers, lectures or reading, DAARSTOC relies on role plays, interactive exercises, and skill practice to build the competence and confidence levels of tomorrow’s leaders and top performers.

 DAARSTOC boasts a powerful and connected network of alumni who currently occupy all organizational levels among a wide variety of industries. Many of them return regularly to DAARSTOC workshops and events, and have expressed that the skills they learned in DAARSTOC distinguished them from their peers upon entering the workforce and throughout their careers.
