MANDATORY Student Organization Officer Training (SOOT)

Re-recognition will be done at this year’s Student Organization Officer Training (SOOT) on Wednesday 9/28 @ 5 – 7:30pm in the GSL. All organization’s President, Vice President, and Treasurer (or equivalent positions) MUST ATTEND. Only officers who attend training are eligible to spend or receive reimbursement.

The goal of SOOT is to educate you on important University policies and procedures related to leading a graduate student organization. These policies are updated each year so it’s important to stay abreast. Additionally, the information will help you be successful in planning events and managing finances.

If you cannot attend SOOT on 10/1, you MUST set up a private meeting to do SOOT before you are eligible to spend any money. Please contact Dr. Ryan.


Annual Budget Request

Please do not forget to submit your 2016-2017 budget proposal via DragonLink or you will not be eligible for funding this year.
