The prompt submission of textbook adoptions by faculty each semester enables the Campus Store to stock necessary textbooks in a timely manner and increases the chances of offering used and rental textbooks, which help students save up to 50 percent off of new book prices. The Campus Store relies heavily on your timely response, so please do not delay.
If you’re interested in adding Inclusive Access textbooks to your course and possibly saving students up to 80 percent off the cost of textbooks please contact Shane Girton at 801-581-8296 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about Inclusive Access please click on the link.
Thanks for your ongoing support of the Campus Store’s textbook adoption program.
The incubator will give preference to university startups and will encourage applications from startups led by historically underrepresented founders, particularly those who have traditionally faced additional barriers to growth and funding.

February’s Advisor of the Month is Jon Diaz, academic advising coordinator in the Academic Advising Center, and assistant director of the Mandatory Advising Program. One of his nominations demonstrates the impact and dedication he has not only to students, but others stepping into advising roles:
“As my mentor, Jon has gone above and beyond in helping me excel in my position as a peer advisor. He has gained my confidence as an advisor, and my ability to help students at the University of Utah. He has given many students a meaningful appointment as they explore and navigate their own college journeys. On one occasion he met with a transfer student who was unfamiliar with the campus and worried about getting lost on their first day. After their appointment, Jon walked with the student all over campus to show him where his classes were being held. Jon has exemplified the mission of our university, and has positively impacted the people here.”
Jon has been an advisor on the U’s campus since October 2017 and is originally from Honduras and grew up in Florida. He shared the following about his advising:
“I meet students where they’re at. Try to see things from their point of view. Listen to them and seek to understand them as best as possible. When this happens, as an advisor, I am then able to help them as best as possible.”
Do you need to meet with an advisor to help create a meaningful plan, navigate the university and graduate on time? See our advisors across campus on our website and schedule an appointment.
Please update the OrgSync profile by completing a registration request. We ask the organization’s leadership to do this at your earliest convenience and to re-submit a request each time the organization’s officer information changes. The deadline for submitting a registration request and renewing your organization will be June 1 at 5 p.m. If the organization misses this deadline, the organization’s OrgSync profile will be “disabled”. A disabled profile will prevent the organization from access to key benefits including reserving rooms on campus, applying for ASUU or FAF grant funding, tabling at PlazaFest, utilizing the tools of OrgSync, and more.
Updating your organization’s OrgSync profile is one of the two annual requirements to maintain your organization’s status as a Recognized Student Organization.
There are three items to note about registration requests:
- To complete a registration request, an individual must have Administrative Access to the portal. This access can be granted by someone who already has that access to your organization’s portal. The Organization Resource Group (ORG) may also grant this access.
- When the registration request is submitted, the organization’s advisor (if applicable) will automatically be sent an email prompting them to approve the submitted information. For Sponsored & Affiliated organizations, the advisor must approved this submitted information before ORG can review the submission.
- To have a request approved by ORG, Recognized Student Organizations must upload a constitution that meets these requirements. Please note certain items need to be listed as verbatim. The requirements have changed slightly since last year, so please pay close attention to the Constitution Checklist.
Registration requests submitted or approved prior to March 8, 2019, will not satisfy the annual requirement for the 2019-2020 academic year. All pending or deferred requests submitted prior to March 8 will be denied.
If you have questions about updating your organization’s OrgSync profile, please contact ORG
Contact the Organization Resource Group (ORG) at 801-581-2788 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You may also schedule an appointment with them on Cranium Cafe/Connex Ed or stop by their office during office hours within the ASUU Suite on the second floor of the A. Ray Olpin Student Union. Student Organizations and ORG are housed within the Department of Student Leadership & Involvement.”
