Student Orgs Bulletin

A weekly rundown of announcements and reminders.

May 7-13, 2017

I publish these bulletins each week to keep all student org leaders and advisors updated on STARS stuff, frequently asked questions, and other important info to help you run a successful student org. If there's a topic you think I should cover, let me know!

Need to Know

Re-registration ends on May 18

Annual Re-registration will be held from May 1-18 this year. Since so many organizations hold officer elections in April, I pushed the re-registration process to May so we can collect the contact information for the new officers before the summer.

On May 1, a button will appear on your org's Owl Connect page that says "Register," Whoever clicks that button will become the org's Primary Contact. They will be asked to verify all org information in Owl Connect, making any necessary changes to the Roster, Constitutions, About, etc. Please note this year we will ask for your faculty/staff advisor's TUID number. The Office of Human Resources will use the TUIDs to enroll all student organization advisors in a mandatory Clery Act training. The training is not a new requirement, but HR has requested the TUIDs to make the enrollment process easier.

We will review re-registration submissions one by one and approve them throughout May and June. You will receive an email via Owl Connect with suggested edits if we have any.

Student Activities Staffing Update

A Message from Chris Carey, Director of Student Activities:

It is my pleasure to announce that Adriane Reilly was recently selected as the new Assistant Director in Student Activities. In this role, Adriane will continue to support student organizations as well as fraternities and sororities through the supervision of the Program Coordinators. She will also be the lead for our Service Immersion Program development. As we congratulate Adriane, we will also shift gears towards hiring a new Program Coordinator for Student Organizations. If any of you are interested in being a part of that process over the summer, please let us know and we will keep you in the loop!

That's all, folks!
