One of the best ways to get involved at UC is by joining a student organization! The University of Cincinnati is home to over 400 student organizations that support a variety of interests. These interests range from political/activist, cultural, academic, social and many more!
If you are unable to find a student organization to join you are more than welcome to start one of your own! Becoming a recognized student organization comes with many privileges including but not limited to:
- Reserve space on campus for meetings and activities
- Conduct approved fundraising projects on campus
- Participate in the fall and spring organization fairs
- Have a university mailbox, when available and the use of a mailing address at the University of Cincinnati
- Apply for funding through the University Funding Board (if eligible) for all campus projects and programs
- Apply for university awards
- Rent vehicles for organization travel
There are several requirements for becoming a registered student organization at UC. These requirements include:
- Constitution and Bylaws consistent with University Policies
- At least 10 matriculating University of Cincinnati student members
- 1 faculty or staff advisor
- Mission statement
- Complete CampusLINK application
- Present to SAB for approval
For more information about organization requirements, visit the Student Activities Board CampusLINK page!
The applications process includes completing the New Organization Registrationcognition process on CampusLINK. To start this process, log in to CampusLINK and navigate to the Organizations tab at the top of your CampusLINK homepage. If new organization applications are being excepted at this time, you will see a button that says Register an organization on the left side of the page underneath the search options. The following requirements are needed to start a New Student Organization and will be submitted through the online process.
Clicking Register an organization will start your organization registration process.
Once Student Activities Board reviews the new organization application on CampusLINK, a member of the board will reach out to the president of the organization. This Student Activities Board member will serve as liaison for the potential new organization. The liaison will work with the group to refine their application, prepare to present to the board. At the SAB meeting where the new org will present, the board has the opportunity to Approve, Deny, or Table the new organization based on the aforementioned criteria and university policy.
