Week of January 7th

Mid-Year Club Evaluations

Club leaders (students and faculty) need to do a mid-year assessment to see if the clubs are living up to their intended goals and objectives based on the recent SFB policy proposals. I want to identify those clubs existing in name only!  Let’s plan to focus on this during this week’s club/activity block. Questionnaire attached to the weekly!
