§ 2-316 Student Organization Advisory Board

  1. The purpose of the Student Organization Advisory Board is to foster intentional student engagement and involvement. The Student Organization Advisory Board provides feedback on pressing student issues that impact full engagement in the co-curricular experience. Meetings throughout the academic year encourage discussion on new initiatives and emergent issues. The Board’s recommendations help to influence The Department of Student Engagement goals, services, and overall effectiveness.
  2. The Board serves as a vehicle for information sharing and support between and among key student leaders, and advocates for university clubs and organizations.
  3. The Board encourages students, clubs and organizations to be contributors to an overall active student life on the campus.
