When planning events, organizations are encouraged to reach out to the K-State Student Union and campus facilities to learn more about the timelines associated with making reservations, as well as any information regarding potential limitations in place.
There are a few things you should know about to successfully manage your student organization, starting with the CSI Update and OrgCentral.
The CSI Update is a weekly newsletter sent to student organization primary contacts, presidents, vice-presidents, secretaries, & advisors. The newsletter provides official communication from K-State and the Center for Student Involvement to student organization leadership.
Please note: Newsletter recipients are pulled directly from organization rosters in OrgCentral. If your roster is out-of-date or if you do not have position titles correctly assigned to members, they will not receive this communication.
All announcements, updates, events, resources, and important information is shared via the CSI Update. Your organizations' leadership should ensure it is read on a weekly basis and passed on to the rest of your organization as needed.
Every registered student organization has a website, or portal, created for them in K-State's organization management platform, OrgCentral. Log in with your K-State eID & password to manage your roster, organization description, events, files, forms, & more!
Attend free workshops, meetings, and events focusing on a variety of leadership topics including carrer and self development, communication, critical thinking, equity & inclusion, leadership, professionalism, teamwork, and technology.
