Registered student organizations, be sure to sign-up for the first Virtual Involvement Fair!

Officers with Event submission access can view the "Upcoming Virtual Fair Events" on their Org's OrgSync Home Profile. The blue sign-up button will direct them to submitting information or show if they are already signed up.

Can't make it?

No worries! You can provide a brief summary on how they can learn more information! You don't have to submit a virtual link for students to join.

Can only represent your org for part of it?

Not a problem. Email Asiah.Claiborne@unt.edu to arrange when your org officers/members can or cannot be present so we can make sure students aren't logging into an empty Zoom call.

Did you opt-in to sharing a promo video for orientation over the summer?

Share the video on your org's profile! If you create a link to a YouTube or Vimeo video in your OrgSync profile description, it will embed the video at the location of your link.

Apply to present at the 2020 All for NT/NT for All Leadership Conference!

The Center for Leadership and Service is putting out a call for presentation proposals for the 2020 All for NT/NT for All Leadership Conference.

What is the All for NT/NT for All Leadership Conference? A two-day conference focused on introducing students to topics that enhance their leadership skills and connecting them to other students to create a network of support. The conference focuses on the Social Change Model of Leadership, where the term “leader” can be non-titled or non-positional, but a participant engaging in the leadership process as a group member.

Based on this model, there are three tracks that students can choose from to guide their conference experience: Leading Self, Leading at UNT, and Leading in a Diverse World. This year we will be breaking those tracks down even further through leadership development. Students can identify and practice their skills as emerging, intermediate, or experienced leaders. Our theme for 2020: Follow the Leadership Road: Finding your way at Home, will focus on how leadership is transforming, and how it is presenting itself virtually during a time of national and global social change. We would like for participants to gain knowledge of how they can be leaders on campus and at home. They may be remote, but that does not mean they need to be unplugged.

Date: Friday, October 9, 2020, and Saturday, October 10, 2020

Time: 10 am- 12:30 pm

Location: If your proposal is selected, zoom links and instruction will follow

How long do I have to present?

Three 20-25 minute sessions

Register here to present by Sept. 20th: https://unt.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_23rK5RHx5KtNAl7
