Resumption of Student Organization Activity in Fall 2020
On September 3, 2020, The Center for Leadership and Involvement posted updates for Student Organizations for Autumn Quarter 2020. The Student Centers worked very closely with with the Center for Leadership and Involvement to lay out plans for resumption of activity, with an emphasis on virtual resources and protocols for limited in-person events. To learn more about these updates, please visit the Autumn Quarter 2020 page on the Center for Leadership and Involvement Website.
In the coming weeks, the Student Centers will also be announcing a schedule of weekly event planning webinars that will be offered live and then recorded and shared as a resource for your student organization’s continued success in event planning, be it virtual or in-person. More details forthcoming!
Student Centers Building Hours
The Student Centers are prioritizing the health and wellness of the greater University community in this difficult time and are adjusting hours in our facilities in conjunction with the guidance of Public Health officials and University leadership. These hours are current as of Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and will be updated and reevaluated as needed. We look forward to welcoming you back into our spaces and building community with you soon. To see our hours for Autumn Quarter 2020, please visit our Hours of Operation page.
Student Centers RSO Quarterly and Annual Processes
The Fall Quarter Room Lottery, Annual Mandel Hall Request Process, and RSO annual application for office and storage are all suspended through Autumn Quarter 2020, based on current University, City and State Guidance on in-person gatherings. We will reevaluate for Winter Quarter and will be sure to send updates along once we’ve determined if we can resume these typical processes later in the academic year.
