Sponsored Student Organizations: Leadership TeamInformation Expectations Rules Resources The purpose of this module is to provide you with information that is critical to your success as a student leader and to the success of your student organization.
Information Oregon State University recognizes that sponsored student organizations are inherently linked to the University because of their role in enhancing education, representing OSU, and/or presenting events that are considered an integral part of the institution. In order to best support the learning of student leaders in our community, we have adopted a philosophical approach of partnership and collaboration for advising individual students and student organizations as “facilitators” in the involvement experience. As “facilitators,” faculty advisors work with administrators, faculty, and staff to support student organization members and leaders in making intelligent, fair, and reasonable choices within the boundaries established by state, federal, and local laws, university rules/policies,and the mission of the sponsoring unit. It is important that there is an intentional relationship between the Leadership Team of your organization and the faculty advisor as the faculty advisor serves as the primary “facilitator” to Sponsored Student Organizations at Oregon State University.
Student Organization Philosophy Student organizations provide living laboratories in which leadership skills are gained and honed. They give students an opportunity to pursue their interests, to succeed, to fail, and most importantly, to grow. Classrooms don’t always provide the opportunity for responsible and accountable involvement that engagement with student organizations provides. Leadership is not merely a collection of skills; leaders must forge their style through experiences that allow them to build and apply organizational and individual capacities for the public good. Student organizations are one of the few opportunities students have to gain hands-on experience while working towards the public good. Oregon State University recognizes the contributions of Student Organizations in creating a compelling learning environment that prepares students to live in a multicultural society and work in a global community. The University recognizes that all students should have access to form and join organizations of their own choosing to enhance their educational experience, support holistic personal development and retention.In order to facilitate the development of these opportunities for involvement, the following values serve as a compass in determining theclassification and support for student organizations at OSU.• Alignment - As advisors, administrators, educators, students, and student organizations, we are aligned with the core mission and values of Oregon State University.• Access - We believe that a student’s ability to form and join organizations of their own choosing is a high priority. As a result, we are committed to having clear, visible, and student- friendly resources and processes that facilitate easy access. This is inclusive of, but not limited to: a mentoring relationship, advising, assistance with recruitment, and access to meeting and activity space.• Engagement - We recognize the value of co-curricular and academic involvement throughout the student experience and are dedicated to facilitating partnerships with students that support shared accountability, responsibility, and learning. Through engagement with student organizations, students develop leadership and organizational skills which enhance knowledge, holistic growth, community development, and student retention.• Health & Community - We support clubs and organizations that enhance our community by providing opportunities for leadership, learning, diversity, and social responsibility. The health of the community will be one of purposeful, open, safe, just, and celebrative outcomes that allow students and the campus to flourish in meeting institutional goals.
