Financial Management Association wins three prestigious awards

Posted on July 13, 2017

Qualifies as nationwide superior chapter

The Minnesota State University Moorhead Financial Management Association (FMA) chapter recently received three prestigious awards from Financial Management Association International.

The MSUM FMA chapter qualified as a superior chapter for its programming and activities last year. The award goes to less than 10 percent of chapters in the country.

Joe Tjosvold, FMA president for 2016-2017, was named one of six nationwide FMA Collegiate Fellows for exemplary leadership and service.

MSUM FMA advisor Tom Hanson was named a Superior Faculty Advisor, an award that goes to only five honorees nationwide.

MSUM was the only chapter in the country to win all three awards this year, and perhaps one of the only to do so in the past 20 years.

Congratulations to all!

Posted on July 10, 2017

DragonCentral has been updated and now has a new look that is more mobile device friendly. Check it out at www.mnstate.edu/dragoncentral!

Our service provider will continue to push out updates as they work to refine this new user experience. All information and functions should have remained, but will be located in a different spot. Some items to note:

  1. The primary web address to promote DragonCentral is www.mnstate.edu/dragoncentral. This will automatically redirect you to the actual website homepage, which has now changed. Please update your bookmarks and website references to the new website address structure, https://mnstate.campuslabs.com/engage/.
  2. The site now has an “Explore” section, geared for those looking to explore how to get involved, and a “Manage” section, geared for those who manage a page/events/etc. For those that manage a page, to make updates, add events, update roster information, create forms, etc., you will now do this through the “Manage” or “Action Center” portion of the site. To switch to the “Manage” section, click on the ::: icon in the top right and select “Manage.” You can then click on or search for your organization and you’ll find a left menu bar (swipe right on a mobile device) with the different areas for you to manage, including adding events, news, documents, roster updates, etc. See attached document for a visual.
  3. If you click on your picture or the round circle with your initial on the top right (or swipe left on a mobile device), you’ll see the menu bar that used to be under the “My Involvement” section. This section includes a listing of organization involvement, the ability to log service hours, the ability to add experiences, and the ability to print off one’s Involvement Report. This is also where you will find the Sign-Out button.
  4. To completely sign-out of the site, please make sure you close your browser after clicking the sign-out button.

Last day to nominate students for Emerging Leaders

Posted on January 20, 2017

The Office of Student Activities is looking toward student leaders, staff, and faculty at MSUM to recommend students for Emerging Leaders, a program in which one can learn about leadership and one’s own leadership style.

We ask that you please share this information with potentially interested students. Emerging Leaders is great for students who do not yet see themselves as leaders. It is also a stepping stone toward the Dragon Leadership Program, typically a two-year program where students actively practice leadership through involvement experiences on campus and in the community.  Read the rest of this entry →
