Besides the training needed to maintain your status as a recognized student organization, Student Activities is proud to offer optional training opportunities that are designed to equip student leaders and advisors with tools that will prepare them to lead and manage their organization.

Financial Training

Not every student leader handles money for their organization, but if you do, learning all about the financial capabilities and resources offered through Student Activities would be a wise decision. The Student Organization Finance Center (SOFC), within Student Activities, handles all of your financial needs, including the training and information you need to be successful.

If you are the treasurer for your organization and need to complete the annual financial training, make sure to sign in on StuAct Online or your progress will not be recorded.

To schedule a personalized training session with our Training Specialist, please contact the SOFC at (979) 845-1114.

Organizational Development Training

Student Activities offers individualized organizational development training workshops on specific topics of interest for student organizations. These workshops are tailored to meet the needs of your unique organization and often entail helpful activities that you can use in the context of your specific group, taking into account the audience (e.g. officer team or all-membership meeting). Previous topics have included fundraising, travel, motivating members, communication and conflict resolution, officer selection and transition, and planning effective retreats or orientations.
