There are many opportunities throughout the year for members of student organizations to practice and improve their leadership skills. Read below to learn more about available opportunities.

Executive Leadership Council Meetings

ELC meetings are held once a month or more, and provide an opportunity for students representing all active student organizations to come together and discuss upcoming events, as well as request event support as needed. ELC also provides the OSILD an opportunity to share any important information that student groups need to be aware of.

For fall 2020, all ELC meetings will be held virtually. The ELC meeting link will be emailed to all organization presidents to share with their members, or can be requested from your Program Coordinator. Meetings are scheduled for Fridays from 12:30-2pm.

ELC Meeting Minutes


EPT and Budgeting Workshops

All students who are responsible for planning events within their organization are required to attend an Event Planning Training, which includes and overview of applicable policies and procedures. Due to the many changes to campus events for fall 2021, an updated version of EPT will take place during the initial meeting with your Program Coordinator in September. Please contact your Program Coordinator if you have any questions.

Budgeting Training are mandatory for all student organization Treasurers and highly recommended for the organization President. Budgeting Workshops cover the policies and procedures for processing bills, purchase orders, keeping the books, and depositing money. Due to changes to purchasing and payment procedures for the fall semester, an updated virtual Budgeting Training will be made available to all student organization Treasurers and other interested members via Zoom. The Budget Training meeting link will be emailed to all organization presidents to share with their members, or can be requested from your Program Coordinator. Meetings will last one hour.
