Orientations & Workshops

Main Content

Student Org Development & Administration offers a series of workshops throughout the year with a range of topics for the development of your student org. Check back as we’re building our workshop line up! Contact our office at getinvolved@illinois.edu to see how we can assist in providing requested training and workshops.

President and Treasurer Orientations are now available via a Canvas class linked below. Presidents and Treasurers must complete the appropriate module and pass the included Quiz with 100% in order for attendance to be counted for compliance. At the beginning of each business day, Student Engagement Staff will update Student Org profiles to reflect the past 24+ hours of completed orientations.

For New or Re-Activating Student Orgs, attendance will only be granted to those who are on time. Due to capacity limits, session attendance may be restricted. We encourage individuals to arrive 5 minutes early to secure a spot. We begin all sessions promptly at the listed starting time to respect everyone’s time. In addition, you must remain in the session for the duration of the orientation. A unique link will be provided at the end of the session where attendees can log their attendance.

Please contact our SODA Team with questions at getinvolved@illinois.edu.
