Student Affairs Orientation

Learning About the Student Affairs Organization

Each semester the Staff Development Team hosts the MyTraining class SD 414 Student Affairs Orientation: What Do We All Do. This mandatory class welcomesnewly hired Student Affairs staff to our vibrant division and all its departments. This workshop provides an opportunity for new staff to meet with coworkers across the division and learn about our rich diversity and the many offices within Student Affairs. Being able to Communicate, Connect, Collaborate and Create across the division and campus starts with knowing what we all do! We look forward to meeting new staff members at this bi-annual event.

Upcoming Dates for New Staff Orientation

February 15, 2017 — H-E-B UC Ballroom 1.106

Information about registration will be sent to the departments. For questions, please email
