Executive Training

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 before or on your registration deadline.

GLO contains three components; Essentials, Finances, and Skills. Student groups are required to complete each component of training.*

*Student groups that do not handle money are exempt from completing the Finances component.

NOTE: If you encounter any problems or have any questions about GLO trainings, please contact Student Group Services at

(Last update: August 21 2020)

GLO: Skills is now available on eClass!

Student Groups that were signed up for GLO Skills sessions, as well as student groups whose registration deadline passed on July 31 2020 or earlier will have the GLO: Skills component of their registration requirements waived. (We still encourage groups to attend future sessions if topics sound interesting or useful to your operations!)

New topics are being added to the GLO: Skills eClass each month! To remain in good standing, clubs must complete a minimum of one Skills topic and its corresponding quiz. Complete as many topics as you would like, if they are of interest to you!
