Student Organizations

UNMC's social, professional, service and advisory organizations are an integral part of life on campus. Membership in many is open to all Medical Center students. Others are open only to students of a particular health professional program or to persons with specified academic achievements. All organizations invite the interest and attention of students and conduct meetings open to nonmembers. UNMC students who wish to form new student organizations and who plan to use campus facilities and services must receive formal recognition and approval. Application forms and guidelines can be obtained from the Counseling and Student Development office, Bennett Hall, Room 6001. For more information, contact Pat Oberlander or Dr. David Carver at 402-559-7276.
