What does the recognition board look for when approving groups?
The Student Organization Recognition Board (SORB) takes several things into consideration. First, is the proposed organization a duplicate or is there already a similar group? New organizations should search the Student Organization Database(SODB) to ensure there isn't already a similar group. SORB also considers the benefit of the organization to the university and the justification of the use of resources for the organization. There may be other things, but these are the most common things the recognition board takes into consideration when reviewing new groups.
