Student Union Sponsorship

RSO Sponsorship

What is a Student Union RSO sponsored event?

The Student Union Programming team will fund a registered student organization to host a large event within the Student Union in order to bring more students into the Union, market themselves and overall serve the student population.

Along with the sponsorship, the Student Union Programming team will also assist in planning the event and offer professional event planning services and marketing for the event. This will be a true partnership between the RSO and the Student Union Programming team.

How much will the Programming Department offer?

Up to $5k per event

Who?

RSOs (must be a registered student organization through the OASIS Center) who apply and are approved for the sponsorship.

How will the sponsorship work?

The RSO group will apply and if approved by the Programming department then the RSO and Programming Coordinator will team up to host the event within the Union together.

The RSO and Programming Coordinator will start by setting up an initial meeting to discuss the details about the future event. Both parties will agree on a date for the event as well as settle on how to split up tasks, set up due dates and create to-do lists.

How will RSOs apply?

The Oasis Center will also share the initial email with details on the program.
