Organizations

An organization is a group that is closely tied to a department on campus, and  has the oversight of that department rather than oversight by Student Activities. It is often in the job description of a department member to advise the group. Frequently, some funding from the department goes towards the group, although it is not always the case. Organizations cannot be funded by the Co-Funding Board.  An organization does not have to go through the club recognition process, nor are they required to have a constitution. Organizations are asked to submit an annual registration form with a list of members, an advisor contract and a constitution (if one exists) to Student Activities each academic year for the purposes of record keeping. All students and student groups must abide by the policies in the Bennie Book and the J Book.
