Types of ASUC Sponsorship:
There are three types of student groups: Activity Group (interest based student group – ex: educational, sports, cultural), Publications (student group that publishes a magazine, newspaper, etc.), or a Student Initiated Service Group/SISG (humanitarian, philanthropy, or service oriented group).
ASUC Sponsorship Process:
Now that you know what type of student group you are a part of, ensure that your group is registered with the LEAD Center (formerly the Center for Student Leadership). Once registered with that office, please contact our office so that we can draft a bill in support of your organization receiving ASUC Sponsorship.The bill will be discussed at the next ASUC Senate’s Finance Committee meeting, which take place Mondays at 9pm in Hearst Gym. If everything goes according to plan, your organization will gain sponsorship in no time and next step is funding!
