Educational Tracks

 

It is recommended that each SEC University send a minimum of 8 students and 1 advisor to attend the 2017 SEC Exchange. However, more representatives are welcome. Each of the eight students will represent your university in a different track and will remain in that track throughout the entire weekend. You will be responsible for assigning your representatives to a particular track. The tracks include:

  • Academics
  • Auxiliary Services
  • Campus Affairs
  • Campus Safety
  • Communications
  • Diversity
  • External Student Government
  • Student Activities

There is also a track for advisors that will meet when the student leaders are in their positional and educational track sessions.

Throughout the weekend, each track will meet a total of four times. At each track meeting, the students will discuss a different subtopic relating to the specific track category. By the end of the conference, each student should have a strong core group of peers and deep understanding of their particular track. The four subtopics within each track include:
