Group Leader Orientation (GLO) is the training piece of the student group recognition cycle. In addition to registering/re-registering your student group each year, members of your student group executive team are required to complete GLO.
GLO contains three components; Essentials, Skills, and Finances. Student groups are required to complete each component of training.*
*Student groups that do not handle money are exempt from completing GLO: Finances.
NOTE: If you encounter any problems or have any questions about the above trainings, please contact Student Group Services at firstname.lastname@example.org

GLO: Essentials teaches student group leaders about policies and resources for student groups.
