Hello and welcome the Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) homepage at the University of Wyoming! RSOs play an important role in involvement outside the classroom at UW, and our office is here to assist you. Within these pages you will find information on a few things:

Feel free to take a few minutes and browse around. If you have any questions about RSOs, please email us at rsohelp@uwyo.edu or stop by and visit us in Union 012.

RSO News and Information (updated 3/24/15):

  • CLUB & ORG FAIR 2015: The RSO Club & Org Fair date has been set. Next fall, the fair will take place on Wednesday, September 2nd from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. out on Prexy’s Pasture. Sign-ups are currently live and available here. Please ensure that whomever in your RSO signs up will be around and involved in the RSO for the fall semester.

  • EVENT PLANNING SESSIONS: If your RSO is planning on requesting ASUW funding for programming events for the last part of the spring 2015 semester OR the first 5 weeks of the fall 2015 semester it is a requirement that one representative of the RSO attend our final Event Planning Session of the year.

    FINAL Spring 2015 Event Planning Session: Monday, 4/6 - 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. - Union Senate Chambers

    Special notes for those attending this session with the intention of requesting ASUW funding for fall 2015 events:
    • The person attending this session MUST be involved with the event planning process in the fall 2015 semester.
    • This session will count for conference registration and program funding requests for events taking place from Wednesday, July 1 - Sunday, October 4 ONLY.
    • ASUW’s final Funding Board meeting will be on 4/20/15
    • All applications have to be in Collegiate Link and approved by ALL event reviewers by 4/13/15 at 5:00 p.m.
    • If your RSO requests additional funding for events taking place after Sunday, October 4th your RSO will be required to attend an additional Event Planning Session during the 2015-2016 academic year. If there are any changes to policies and procedures with the entities involved in these sessions between now and the start of the 2015-2016 academic year, RSOs will be expected to abide by all current policies and procedures in place at the time of the event. Furthermore, RSOs will be expected to adhere to the most current RSO Handbook guidelines for upcoming year. The RSO Handbook for 2015-2016 will be published in late summer via our website. Any significant changes to procedures will be communicated via the RSO listserv.
    • There will only be one additional session at the beginning of September for early fall 2015 semester requests. The date and time will be announced after Priority Scheduling has taken place.  We strongly encourage you to be proactive and attend the event planning session this semester.
    • We are adjusting the scope and layout of the Event Planning Sessions for next year -- more information is forthcoming concerning this adjustment and will be communicated after Priority Scheduling has taken place.
  • CONSTITUTION AUDITS: Because of a recent update in UW Regulation 8-234, the language in the non-discrimination clause in all RSO constitutions need to be revised to be in compliance with University requirements. For reference of this change, please see part III, section C of the UW Regulation 8-234.

    In accordance with this update, the Campus Activities Center is seeking to audit all RSO constitutions on a voluntary basis this semester. This audit is to ensure RSOs are updating this specific clause and also verify that all other constitution requirements are met, as an audit has not been performed for group constitutions in quite some time. Your President and Advisor should have received notification about this a few weeks ago, and this is a follow up notification to all group members. The Presidents and Advisors will be notified again as a follow up from our office. If you have any questions about this process, please email us at rsohelp@uwyo.edu Groups who opt to NOT update their constitution this spring will be required to submit an approved constitution to our office as part of the recognition process next year. This could significantly delay your recognition from our office next fall. We HIGHLY encourage you to submit a constitution to our office this semester or over the summer.
  • CAC CO-SPONSORSHIPS: The Campus Activities Center wants to work with RSOs! We actively seek to foster partnerships and relationships with organizations on campus. If your group needs assistance with planning, advertising, or financing an event, we may be able to help! We are currently accepting sponsorship solicitations for the Fall 2015 semester. For more information or to request consideration please click here.

  • FEATURED RSOS: We are currently soliciting groups to be our ‘Featured RSOs’ for the 2015-16 academic year. By being the Featured RSO, student organizations are able to receive recognition for their hard work while receiving special promotion from the Campus Activities Center. More information can be found here.
  • OFFICER TRANSITIONS: We anticipate several groups will soon be in the process of elections. Groups have the ability to administer elections in your organization page of Collegiate Link. You would need to have your entire roster up to date on Collegiate Link, but if this is something that interests you, instructions on implementing organization elections with Collegiate Link organization page may be found here. As a reminder, once your elections have taken place, PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ROSTER within Collegiate Link accordingly. Instructions on how to update your roster may be found here. This is very important so that our office is able to communicate with your organization over the summer months and that the incoming officers are able to complete the recognition procedures in the fall. For your use, we’ve also got some helpful tips for the officer transition process found on page 12 of the RSO Handbook.

  • RECOGNITION PROCESS: The CAC will be making a significant change in the recognition process for the upcoming academic year. Please be on the lookout on our website and via the RSO listserv for these announcements in the coming months. This is also another reason that it’s important for you to update your officer information for the upcoming year so we can ensure we’re communicating with the correct people going into next year.
