Student Organization Committee

The Student Organization Committee (SOC) oversees the Central Student Government's work in providing financial assistance and appropriating funds to student organizations across campus. The SOC is made up of the Student Organization Funding Committee and Wolverine Consulting Group.

Student Organization Funding?

The Student Organization Funding Committee (SOFC) is the organization which appropriates funding to recognized student organizations. SOFC considers funding requests for student organizations and their events, activities, and initiatives under the guidelines. SOFC distributes funds to student organizations upon reception of receipts.

Student Organization start-up costs?

Wolverine Consulting Group (WCG) provides consulting services and start-up funds for student organizations on campus. By working constructively with student organizations, WCG's mission is to aid these groups in achieving their full potential. WCG allocates funds directly to organizations on a non-reimbursement basis, as start-up costs and for extraordinary circumstances when it is not practical to wait for reimbursement.

Our policies

We have several policies governing our funding distribution in place. We have created a webpage with an overview of all these policies. In addition, we have new policies relating to equity and inclusion going into effect fall semester, and have created a page with an overview of those policies.
