Your student group profile is your group’s public face to the University community. The GopherLink platform is a centralized place for the University community to learn about student groups, organizations and clubs. In addition, your group’s profile is used by campus partners to access your group’s contact information, to confirm your status, and to review who has permission to access benefits on behalf of your group.
You must be a student group officer and signed into the GopherLink Administrative Dashboard with your University of Minnesota Internet ID and password to access the help guides below.
- How to Edit Your Group's Profile
- Note: Once you have gotten to the page to edit your profile, you will need to select “Update my student group profile” from the “What are you trying to do?” drop down menu.
Are changes to group’s profiles reviewed by the Student Activities Office?
- If you change your group’s categories or Public Officer Roster, the Student Activities Office will review your updates before they show up on your group’s profile page. Student Activities verifies that the individuals listed on the Public Officer Roster are also listed on the group’s Internal Roster on GopherLink.
Student groups may not change their Organization Name outside of annual re-registration without prior permission from the Student Activities Office.
All other updates are not reviewed by Student Activities and will appear on your group’s profile shortly after you submit updates.
If updates to my group’s profile are reviewed by Student Activities, what is the timeline?
- The Student Activities Office will review your updates within 7-10 business days. If corrections need to be made, you will be notified via email from GopherLink/Presence with instructions about how to make corrections.
