Sponsored Student Organizations

Sponsored Student Organizations (SSO): student organizations that are formally recognized by the University and are inherently linked to a University department. They are classified as sponsored as they are groups that are departmentally supported. The mission and operations of an SSO are considered mission critical to a specific department and/or the University. The financial resources used to support an SSO come directly from a University department and, therefore, SSOs are not eligible to receive funding through the Student Activity Fund.

Please review the Registered Student Organizations (RSO) handbook as it includes information relevant to SSO as well. For example, SSO are also required to go through the annual renewal process and submit Activity Request Forms on LUCommunity for their events. The handbook is located under the annual requirements for RSO.
