Student Org Spaces and Continuation

Student Organizations are encouraged to continue operating, but must do so within the COVID-19 guidelines. Student organizations are a critical resource in ensuring that students feel like they are still part of a community. The Office of Student Affairs is available to meet with you to discuss any challenges your org may be facing, help you put together a safety plan for your activities, and develop strategies to keep your communities connected. If you feel that you cannot complete your student org work within the COVID guidelines, please reach out to Mariah Fiuamara at mariahmo@umich.edu to discuss what resources that we can provide to make this possible.

Will College/University resources (OSA, CCI, funding, etc.) be available for student organizations to execute planned initiatives?

If the initiative fits within the COVID-19 guidelines of the time then we would be happy to provide any support we can. Student organization support, resources, and advising remain available to you through OSACCI, and SOAS. Please reach out to Mariah Fiumara at mariahmo@umich.edu to schedule a meeting or with any questions you may have.

The College has also compiled a list of various online resources that can help student orgs continue to work virtually during this time. Please visit the Student Org website or request access to our Canvas site to explore these resources.

At this time, student org funding is still available for CoE affiliated organizations for the coming year and can be accessed at our website.
