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 email@example.com
All student groups are required to complete GLO: Essentials. This component of training is offered online through eClass; the link to enrol is below. GLO: Essentials teaches student group leaders about policies and resources for student groups.
Have one of your student group executive members complete this training online or attend the in-person training to give your group credit for GLO: Essentials.
All student groups are required to complete a minimum of one GLO: Skills session to fulfill student group recognition requirements. Have one of your student group executive members attend a session to give your group credit for GLO: Skills.
This component of training is offered only in person every week. There are numerous GLO: Skills sessions offered that are on different topics that may help student group leaders in their roles. Groups are encouraged to attend as many GLO: Skills sessions as they would like!
