In the 2018-2019 Academic Year, the Department of Student Leadership & Involvement retired its old policy of rolling recognition for student organizations, and SLI established a new policy utilizing Recognition Periods. These periods are two-week windows that prospective organizations have to submit an application and complete the process. There are two recognition periods in the fall semester and one in the spring. By switching to recognition periods, new student organizations have the opportunity to meet the Organization Resource Group, learn about OrgSync, and establish firm foundations to support their retention and their goals.
