Recognized Student Organizations: Updates & Resources

RSOs are a vital part of the University community and play an important role in the lives of many students. Maintaining these social networks can help provide a sense of normalcy and valuable outlets for sharing feelings and relieving stress. The Center for Leadership & Involvement (CLI) staff are available to meet with you and your RSO leadership to discuss how your organization can continue to function and program during our hybrid year.

We recognize this has been a unique and challenging year for RSOs, and we appreciate all of your hard work in building community among your members and the larger campus. Remember that your RSO advisor is available to address any questions or concerns that you may have.
