In response to student deaths and injuries related to hazing and student organization functions, House Bill 2639/Senate Bill 1138 was enacted by the 80th Texas Legislature. The bill requires faculty advisors and members of student organizations to undergo “Risk Management Training” that must deal with the following elements:
The PowerPoint audio/video presentation “Risk Management Strategies for Student Organizations” satisfies these training requirements. (You also can view
slides (PDF - 4.8MB) of the presentation.)
Faculty advisors and members of student organizations
must attend risk management training beginning the fall of 2008. All members of student organizations must be informed when the training is to occur or informed of how to meet training requirements.
Records of attendance must be maintained for 3 years. Use the
RMSSO Attendance Record (PDF - 31KB), or any other suitable recording method, to record members who have received the training.
