Benefits of Organization Recognition

Introduction

  • All organizations must be recognized with the Student Activities Center, Division of Student Affairs, in order to function within the university. Recognized organizations play an important role in developing leadership and providing a quality campus environment. Because of their importance, recognized organizations are accorded special privileges and benefits.

  • The Student Organizations Recognition Board (SORB) is a team of students and staff that determines the recognition level for all student organizations. SORB members are selected through an application process with objective consideration for broad representation from all student organizations.

  • Students bring to the campus a variety of interests previously acquired, and they develop many new interests as part of the university community. They should be free to organize and join associations to promote their interests. Iowa State University acknowledges the important value that volunteer associations of students have as a part of the educational process. Recognized organizations play an important role in developing student leadership and providing quality campus environments.

  • Student and Campus Organizations that desire to become recognized by the Student Activities Center should consult the Student Organization Recognition Policy found at:http://policy.iastate.edu/policy/sorp/.
