RSO Policy – Resources

The resources provided here should hopefully give you and your organization a more in depth understanding of these policy changes as well as act as references when you begin to pursue some of these different processes. More resources will be added here over time so check back for updates in the next few weeks if you see a ‘coming soon’ note. We invite discussion on these documents! So if you have a suggestion for a resource that is not provided below or find a problem with any of the already provided materials, please reach out to the Joint VP of Finance, Josh Eastwood.

Please note, that due to the short duration between being made aware of these new policies and creating this website, we were not able to finalize all of the resources yet. However, we are currently working to expand this page so some items are still being added. Thank you for your patience.

SGA is not the only on-campus funding source available to RSOs. If there is something that SGA doesn’t fund, one of these may be able to help you – they all have different timelines and application processes so it is best to plan ahead as far as possible if you are not familiar with them.
