Student Clubs & Organizations
At Richland Community College, we realize there is more to your education than what you learn inside the classroom. For that reason, we offer a variety of Student Clubs & Organizations to meet your needs. To get involved, attend the Student Engagement Fair at the beginning of each semester, go to a club meeting or contact a club officer. You can find contact information for each Student Club & Organization in the Office of Student Engagement.
Responsibilities of Student Clubs & Organizations
Student club & organizations are guided by two principals: Community and Self Government. Success depends upon shared decisions and responsibility by all members of the club/organizations. All club & organizations are responsible for:
- Observing all policies and regulations of the College.
- Observing all policies and regulations of Campus Life.
- Registering the club or organization once a year to maintain good standing with the College. All organizations have a two-year grace period to renew their recognition status before funds are dispersed to current recognized clubs.
- Provide a monthly activity and finance report to Campus Life.
- Promote academic success with all members.
- Encourage participation in the Campus Life Student Leadership Program.
