The main support staff for recognized student organizations is the Leadership, Student Engagement and First Year Experience Office. Their mission for the student organization system and advising processes is to promote the development of fellowship and unity among organization members and the betterment of the campus and the surrounding community through involvement in service, education, leadership training and social and recreational programs. They work very closely with the Student Government Association (which confers organizational recognition and allocates student activity fee funds) and the Vice President for Student Affairs, on most organizational matters.
This page includes the things you need most often as a recognized student organization. If there is anything else you would like to see here, please let us know: email@example.com
The LSE Office is the main contact for any organizational questions. LSE can help with policy, risk management, administrative requirements, group development needs and more. Please call the LSE Office at 403-4023.
Access is the easiest and most complete way to get all the information and forms you need to run your organization well. Attendance by all organizations is vital. Primarily held for organizational presidents and advisors, Access is a meeting that takes place at the beginning of each semester, facilitated by the Leadership, Student Engagement and First Year Experience Office. The meetings are designed to keep you up to date with recognition requirements and policy changes. All organizations must have a least one representative in attendance. At the first meeting in September, you receive your organizational packet, which includes handbook updates, and all forms that need to be completed before the end of September. You also receive information about educational and service opportunities, as well as a chance to ask questions and voice any concerns for the upcoming year. The second meeting, scheduled in January, provides you with information to assist in a smooth transition as officers change and the end of the academic year approaches.
To get an item on the agenda for either meeting, simply give LSE a call at 403-4023, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
