Student Organizations Committee Update – Nov. 6Posted: November 6, 2013
The Student Organizations Committee’s main purpose is to serve as the primary liaison between student organizations and MUSG. Our duties are to evaluate potential student organizations and advocate for established student organizations on campus. We work closely with the Office of Student Development, and are advised by Matt Lengen, Coordinator for Student Organizations and Leadership, and Lauren Mountain, Graduate Assistant for Student Organizations.
In the last three weeks, the Student Organizations Committee has approved the following new student organizations: Humanity in Healthcare, eSports, Students for Justice in Palestine and the Daughters of Isabella. Humanity in Healthcare advocates for compassion among science and health majors, eSports is a social organization for online gamers, Daughters of Isabella is the sister organization to Knights of Columbus and Students for Justice in Palestine focuses on raising awareness and promoting cultural understanding.
Student Organizations Committee is also exploring initiatives to better serve already established student organizations. We are looking into the feasibility of student organization vans for organizations that fall outside of the categories of community service and club sports. We are also looking forward to teaming up with the Student Organizations Funding Committee to make outreach efforts to organizations who have historically not applied for funding.
All of our committee members are enthusiastic about student organizations, and actively seek feedback and suggestions that would benefit students on campus. I encourage students to contact me or any member of the committee with issues that their organization may be facing.
