Re-Recognition Policy 

Each semester, student organization representatives must attend a mandatory re-recognition training and complete additional requirements to remain an active student organization. Student organizations accept the following obligations as conditions under which they must operate in order to be recognized. Recognized student organizations must:
·         Maintain officers of at least 1 President and 1 Treasurer, plus a minimum of 3 additional members; officers must be in good academic (minimum 2.0 cumulative and semester) and conduct standing.
·         Secure a faculty/staff adviser who holds at least 75% FTE status and submit an Adviser Contract Form for each adviser working with the student organization.
·         Send two organization representatives to the fall and spring re-recognition training. Attend additional required meetings called by the Student Involvement and Employment Office.
·         Update officer and adviser information in the Student Organization Database.
·         Submit two copies (1 – hard copy; 1 – electronic Microsoft Word document emailed to sieo@uwsp.edu) of the organization constitution (at least every three years).
·         Provide a current on-campus mailing address for the organization. Organizations can request a mailbox in the Student Involvement and Employment Office.
·         Complete the annual risk assessment survey.
·         Conduct their activities according to state, municipal, and University regulations.
·         Not allow instances of reckless conduct to occur during activities sponsored by the organization. Reckless conduct is defined as an act which: creates a situation of unreasonable risk, carries a high probability of causing bodily harm to another, and/or demonstrates a conscious disregard for the safety of another and a willingness to take risks recognized as having a high probability of causing an injury and is otherwise considered reckless conduct by the Student Involvement and Employment Office.
·         Have one (or more) full-time UW-Stevens Point faculty or staff member as an adviser.
·         Develop budget management procedures to assure fiscal responsibility. Financial statements must be provided to the Student Government Association or Student Involvement and Employment Office, upon request. Refer to constitution guidelines for specific instructions of how finances will be handled.
·         Present a written annual report of the group’s accomplishments, upon request.
·         Be reviewed periodically by the Student Government Association (SGA) and/or the Policy and Advisory Committee for Student Organizations (PACSO), for the purpose of:
o   Gaining information about the status of each recognized organization.
o   Helping organizations increate their potential for success and contribution to the University.
o   Allowing SGA to review annual budget plans and materials to determine whether they are current.
o   Determining whether information submitted for initial recognition is still valid for the activities, structure, and purpose of the organization.
