Student Org Basics
Student Org Basics is held completely online this year!
Anyone can watch the video and learn the basics. In fact, we encourage you to share the videos with all officers of your organization-- you could watch them together in a group at your next e-board meeting. Certain people must take accompanying quizzes for completion of this annual requirement. Presidents (as listed on your org's Owl Connect roster) must take the quiz for Student Orgs 101. Treasurers must take the quiz for Money Money Money. Finally, two people (officer or member) who are heavily involved in event planning must take the quiz for Student Center Operations. (If your org has non-traditional officer positions, contact the Program Coordinator for Student Organizations to discuss.)
All quiz takers must correctly answer 12 of 15 questions on the first attempt (80%). Orgs who score below 80% will be required to attend additional training to review the video material. Orgs will be given until September 15 to complete this requirement or risk suspension of privileges such as STARS rewards, TSG Allocations, or space reservations. Please contact Student Activities if you have any questions!
STARS In-Person Workshops & Events Calendar
The STARS Workshop calendar is now integrated with Owl Connect. This allows us to provide you with the most up-to-date times, locations, and information. All workshops and descriptions can be found on Owl Connect’s Events Calendar by clicking on the “STARS” category. Please read them carefully to select the workshops that best suit your organization's leadership development and organizational management goals.
New workshops and events qualifying for STARS credit will be added throughout the year, so check the calendar frequently.
STARS Workshop Library
Bring the workshops to your organization! Our Workshop Library contains 13 topics especially selected to enhance your organizational development! These workshops can help you fulfill certain STARS criteria all while encouraging more discussion and reflection among your officers and members. To borrow a workshop CD, please e-mail the Program Coordinator for Student Organizations listing the top 3 titles you'd like to borrow and the date and time you'd like to pick the CD up from our office. Please allow for 2-3 days' advanced notice to check that the title is available and for preparation of materials. Organizations may only borrow 1 CD at a time. The STARS Workshop Library does not serve as "make-up" sessions for the STARS In-Person Workshops, including Inclusive Leadership and Transitional Leadership.
