Student Organizations Online Resources
With the University’s decision to move to online classes, we wanted to make sure that you, as a student leader, and your organization are equipped with the tools you need to be successful while transitioning your operations online!
There are a lot of platforms, resources, and technology available to you and your organization that can assist you in moving your operations online. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a first-time user, this technology can help you continue to do your work, by providing a secure, easily-accessible place for you to access materials.
Move Your Operations/Meetings Online:
Remember- some of our members are relocating, they should not be required to attend any in person meetings at this time. We all need to adjust our membership expectations and be flexible with an ever-changing situation.
Have you considered?
- Using Microsoft Teams to host video E-Board meetings/Sub-Committee Meetings (Helpful videos on Microsoft Teams are available here).
- Creating an Agenda on OneDrive Document and having all contributors post by a certain date/time
- Conference calling as an option for meetings!
- Create shared documents so everyone stays informed!
- Treasurers can post budgets
- Presidents can create/post job descriptions
- E-Board Members can outline/create transition documents (Check out these Event Planning Resources).
- Teams can collaborate in updating Constitutional documents, etc.
For more information about how to use some of SHU's resources for the management of your student organization, please check out TLTC's Website.
Continue to Engage with Your Membership:
Just because you are moving online temporarily, doesn't mean you need to stop all communication
- Use Microsoft Teams Channel to chat!
- Gather feedback
- Host a brainstorm
- Schedule a shared experience- Watching a TED Talk together, or a show/movie on Netflix and discussing after!
- Plan for the summer/next semester!
- Want @HallStudents to market your content?! No Problem- submit your materials here.
Think Outside the Box:
This is a great opportunity to re-think some of your operations, and identify other ways of engaging with your fellow Pirates! Perhaps now is a good time to consider:
- Launching a Podcast
- Reviewing your transition documents
- Identifying resources that continue to develop your team!
- Develop Marketing Content
- Host an online event
- Engage your followers on Social Media
