Campus Organizations

Joyce Karanouh-Schuler
Joint Vice President of Campus Organizations

Welcome to Campus Organizations! Our primary task is to advocate for campus organizations’ interests, both in SGA and the administration. We work closely with the Center for Student Engagement to create and maintain organization-centric policies, while also tackling larger initiatives to support our strong network of organizations. This year, we are focusing on providing more financial and educational resources for campus organizations, facilitating collaboration between organizations, and creating pathways for advocacy from organizations to SGA and the administration.
