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.
