Benefits of Recognition

Student organizations at Rutgers University provide students with an opportunity to explore interests, sharpen skills, and learn about themselves and others while enhancing the academic mission of the college. Organizational involvement allows students to develop those skills that will prepare them for their career and civic responsibilities beyond the University. For an organization to be fully operational at Rutgers University, recognition must occur. Recognition grants many on campus privileges to student organizations. Some of these benefits include:

  • An up-to-date organization database maintained by Rutgers University Student Involvement and Leadership.
  • Authorized use of Rutgers University facilities and university services.
  • Ability to request funds from the RUSA Allocations Board.
  • Participation in Rutgers University events including the Annual Involvement Fair and more.
