At this time, the Student Senate Leadership Committee's agenda will not allow for new organizations to be approved. Student organizations that have submitted the proper paper work will be able to have provisional recognized status until the full Student Senate vote in February of 2016.
In the spring semester of 2016, the Intent to Organize form and the organization's Constitution must be submitted by the call for funding date provided by the Student Senate Finance Committee. All groups that submit after that date will not be eligible for recognized status until the following fall. Organizations are also encouraged to speak with the Coordinator of Student Organizations throughout this process.
Thinking of starting a new student organization on campus? There are many great reasons to become formally recognized. Recognized organizations have the ability to reserve space on campus for meetings and events, advertise on campus, use the Student Organization Suite (SOS) resources, fundraise, and utilize the Office of Financial Services (OFS) to monitor funds.
Steps for Organization Recognition
Student organizations may be provisionally recognized prior to Leadership Committee, Student Senate, and Campus Life approval. The purpose of provisional recognition is to allow for advertising of organizational meetings and securing a room on campus for those meetings. A provisionally recognized group is not allowed to hold any events on campus or advertise on campus for anything other than meetings pertaining to the formation of the organization.
