Carthage’s Office of Student Involvement is encouraging student organizations to maintain connections during our time of separation so that students feel supported and engaged, and have the opportunity to connect and have fun with classmates.
All in-person events have been canceled for the remainder of the school year.
Student Organizations During Remote Learning
During the period of virtual classroom instruction, we hope that you maintain connections and find ways to engage with the members of your organization. Google.Meet, Skype, or FaceTime are great resources to host virtual meetings. We encourage you to maintain your regularly scheduled meeting times and proposed topics, with potential adjustments to activities to fit the virtual format.
Student organization leaders can use this time to make updates to their organization-specific page on The Harbor.
Organization Finances and Budget Requests for Fall 2020
Budget information sessions were tentatively scheduled for the end of March, which now overlaps with the virtual instruction period. Student Involvement staff is working closely with the Student Government Finance Committee to coordinate virtual information sessions to ensure that the timeline for budget requests and approval stays intact so your organization can continue to plan for the fall. Information will be shared broadly about upcoming information sessions and budget submission deadlines by the end of this week.
Virtual Campus Events
The Office of Student Involvement, the Dean of Students Office of Equity and Inclusion, and the Center for Faith and Spirituality are working together to develop a series of virtual involvement opportunities for students during the remote instruction period.
Keep up with the social media outlets for the Office of Student Involvement (@carthageinvolvement), the Office of Equity and Inclusion (@carthagediversity), and the Center for Faith and Spirituality (@carthage_cfs) for behind-the-scenes looks as we prepare for these programs.
