A Student Organization is defined as any recognized group/organization at SOM which is directed and controlled by students and whose programs and activities are well matched with the University’s mission, vision, and core values. The relationship between School of Medicine and Student Organizations generates neither a contractual relationship between SOM and the organization, nor a property right or expectancy in the organization of any sort. Duties performed, and activities undertaken by recognized organizations are not those of the University.
All student organizations shall be open to all School of Medicine students regardless of race, creed, disability, sexual orientation, age and sex. All student organizations must adhere to the rules and procedures set forth in the student handbook and the Student Government Association (SGA) constitution, including the non-discrimination requirements for membership. Active membership in recognized student organizations shall be limited to currently enrolled SOM students.
