S.O.L.A.R. Banner

As we navigate through uncharted waters this academic year, the Office of Student Orientation, Leadership, and Engagement is looking for innovative ways to provide support and leadership advancement to our student organization leaders.

With this in mind, we invite all of our registered student organizations to participate in our all-new Student Organization Leadership Advancement Retreat (S.O.L.A.R.). With topics covering the “nitty-gritty” of student organizations such as fundraising and recruitment all the way to leadership transitions and the development of personal and organizational goals, S.O.L.A.R. will provide you with all the tools required for success as a student organization.

We ask that your student organization sends two (2) representatives to participate in S.O.L.A.R. S.O.L.A.R. will be held on Saturday, September 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (tentatively) via an online platform. We kindly ask for your representatives to complete the RSVP process here. Deadline to register is Friday, September 18 by 12 p.m. (noon). We are allowing for students to represent multiple student organizations. We are also allowing for students to leave the session early (if need be for work or other reasons) as long as they have another student organization representative to replace them.

As highlighted in Page 9 of The Leader, student organizations are required to send two (2) representatives to S.O.L.A.R. This was also mentioned during our office’s Student Organization Townhall meeting.

Student Organization Leadership Advancement Retreat (S.O.L.A.R.)

At the beginning at every academic year, SOLE holds a retreat specifically for student organization leaders. Organization members are required to send a pre-determined number of officers to the retreat to review TAMIU policies, procedures and to strengthen their leadership capacity.

Student organizations that fail to send two (2) representatives to S.O.L.A.R. may be subject to sanctions as detailed in The Leaderthat may result in disciplinary action including up to the removal of status as a Registered Student Organization on campus.
