Trending Topics Nomination Form:

Trending Topics is an annual speaker series hosted by SU where student groups can nominate up to two speakers who will then be discussed and voted on by Treasury in an April appeal session. This year, speakers will range in price from $10,000 to $100,000 in order to expand the series from past years. The nomination form on WUGO is now open and submissions will be allowed until March 3 at 11:59PM. Please reach out to me ( with any questions!


2019-2020 Student Union General Budget Released:

The General Budget for the 2019–2020 school year has been released. You can see it here: General Budget.


Responsible Community Training

At SGLT, we introduced the Responsible Community Training pilot program in partnership with Title Mine, LIVE, SARAH, and the RSVP Center.  These trainings are intended to make our campus community more supportive and more safe. For groups participating in the program (mandatory for all CAT I student groups funded for large-scale social events, available to any other interested student group), please fill out this form as soon as possible to schedule your group’s training.  For more information on the resources available through this program, please see the attached flyer.


Opportunity Fund Update:

As the semester begins, we would like to remind Presidents and Treasurers about the Opportunity Fund. The Opportunity Fund is a resource for eligible students to subsidize their extracurricular needs. All eligible students have received an email from Student Financial Services regarding their eligibility . Please encourage your members that are eligible to utilize the resource as you leaders begin planning for the semester. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the SU President, Grace, at


WUGO Rosters:

Please make sure your group’s WUGO roster is kept up to date. This means that you have exactly one President and Treasurer listed, since those will be the people with those accesses in SU Finance.


Thanks for reading!
