Student Organization Success Coach Consultations

Student Activities offers ongoing support for any student organization through consultations with Student Organization Success Coaches, who are trained peer leaders who can help you strengthen your student organization's member development efforts, general operations, and community engagement. Coaches cover a wide variety of support topics and can sustain ongoing relationships with student organizations. You can schedule a meeting with a Coach for questions about a specific resource or resource referral, discussions with your leadership team, reviewing your constitution, developing organizational goals and action plans, and anything that will support your organization!

Book an appointment

Student Coaches will not have appointments or office hours when offices are closed, during university breaks, or during the summer term. Instead, staff will be available for bookings during university breaks and summer term.

Based on volume of submissions, it may be possible that your announcement is not included in the next publication.

Student Organizations: Submit an Event to the Student Org Calendar

All active/pending organizations are now able to advertise on the Student Life Calendar. You can add your organization’s events and milestones. Events can be on-campus or off-campus, in-person or virtual. Milestones are considered opportunities that are not tied to a location such as an application deadline. Regular student org meetings cannot be posted to the calendar, but all other programs and opportunities you’d like to widely advertise can now be shared on a much larger platform! Learn more about how the calendar works and start posting at Email with questions.
