Registered Student Organization HANDBOOK


If you can't find what you're looking for, contact the Office of Student Involvement.

  • Purchase Request: To request the purchase of event supplies, all organizations must complete a purchase request at least four (4) weeks in advance of the date supplies are needed. To make this request, an officer of the organization must go into the "Manage" view of the organization's MyEngage portal. In the hamburger menu on the top left of the page you will find a "Finance" option. This is where you will submit SABC funding budget requests as well as purchase requests.
  • Reimbursement/Voucher Form: This form is used to reimburse student organization members when personal funds have been spent to purchase supplies for a budgeted organization event. *Note: the University's tax-exempt status cannot be used to purchase supplies. You will not be reimbursed for tax on any purchase*
  • W-9 Form: This form is used alongside the Reimbursement/Voucher Form to provide proper payment information so the student organization member can be properly reimbursed.
The Office of Student Involvement is dedicated to helping your student organization be successful. We offer a variety of training and resources for student leaders and organizations:

SOLE

Student Organization Leadership Education (SOLE) is the annual training for all student organizations. Held each fall in the Millennium Student Center, SOLE was created to give student organization leaders the tools they need to run their organization for the year. The day is set up as a conference-style event with sessions including MyEngage basics, Budgets & Bills, Marketing Your Leadership Skills, and Working With Your Advisor. 

In addition to the annual SOLE held each fall, the Office of Student Involvement will also host a condensed version of SOLE in the spring. This spring workshop provides an opportunity for organizations that did not successfully complete the annual organization renewal process to do so in the Spring (attendance at SOLE is required for organizations to be recognized on campus). Organizations that have already completed the annual renewal process for the current year are not required to attend this workshop but are still welcome to attend.

Recognized Student Organization Expectations & Conduct

A student at the University assumes an obligation to behave in a manner compatible with the University's function as an educational institution and voluntarily enters into a community of high achieving scholars. A student organization recognized by the University of Missouri also assumes an obligation to behave in a manner compatible with University’s function as an educational institution. Consequently, students and student organizations must adhere to community standards in accordance with the University’s mission and expectations.

These expectations have been established in order to protect a specialized environment conducive to learning which fosters integrity, academic success, personal and professional growth, and responsible citizenship.

Jurisdiction of the University of Missouri generally shall be limited to conduct which occurs on the University of Missouri premises or at University-sponsored or University-supervised functions. However, the University may take appropriate action, including, but not limited to the imposition of sanctions under Sections 200.020 and 200.025 of the Collected Rules and Regulations against students and student organizations for conduct occurring in other settings, including off campus, in order to protect the physical safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors or if there are effects of the conduct that interfere with or limit students ability to participate in or benefit from the University’s educational programs and activities.

A student organization is a recognized student organization which has received official approval in accordance with Section 250.010 of the Collected Rules and Regulations. To determine whether a student organization is responsible for conduct outlined in Section 200.010C, all circumstances will be considered, including but not limited to whether:

  1. The student organization approved, condoned, allowed, encouraged, assisted or promoted such conduct;
  2. The prohibited behavior in question was committed by one or more student organization officers or a significant number of student organization members;
  3. Student organization resources, such as funds, listservs, message boards or organization locations, are used for the prohibited conduct; and/or
  4. A policy or official practice of the student organization resulted in the prohibited conduct.
