Orientation Team

About the Teams

The primary purpose of the Orientation Team will be to plan, oversee the implementation of, and evaluate the several orientation sessions conducted at various times during the year for new and transfer students who plan to enroll at Sul Ross State University. Independent Alpine and Rio Grande College teams will also be responsible for reviewing the goals and objectives for orientation and for recommending changes in format, times, duration, and fees, as appropriate, following evaluations of previous orientation programs. A secondary responsibility will be to plan, oversee the implementation of, and evaluate the Family Day activities.

Primary Responsibility Area: Alpine campus and RGC campuses independently
