Benefits of Recognition

Student organizations at Rutgers University-Camden provide students with an opportunity to explore interests, sharpen skills, and create their identity while enhancing the academic mission of the University. 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, they must be registered with the Office of Student Involvement and considered a recognized student organization. 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 Student Governing Association (if eligible based on additional requirements).
  • Participation in Rutgers University-Camden events including involvement fairs and more.
  • Access to reserve on-campus space through the Events Office and EMS.
  • Being in the “information loop” for organizations at Rutgers University.
  • A free account at the Student Activities Business Office to maintain your organization’s funds.
  • Advising on program and event planning, trip facilitation, budgeting, and risk management.
  • An organization profile on the Engage platform.
  • Various leadership development and training programs to enhance your officers’ and members’ skills.
  • Free exposure/advertisement of the organization through Student Involvement Publications, and Engage accounts.
  • Opportunity to work with a Faculty/Staff Advisor who will provide support and guidance for your organization.
