UNMC students carry with them a breadth of interests which evolve and expand over time and that students should be free to organize and join associations to promote those interests. The Student Life Inclusion and Diversity Office (SLIDO) is committed to the importance of these student associations in: 

In order to best ensure community safety and the effectiveness of student organizations, all student organizations are required to be recognized by SLIDO to function within the university and utilize benefits of membership. 

Information on active student organizations is available in Engage.

Student Organization Re-Registration  

Beginning in 2021, every student organization must go through an annual renewal process. The renewal process will be open from April 5 through April 30, 2021 in ENGAGE. It is the responsibility of organization leadership to complete this process.

Once the renewal process is complete, the student organization will be listed as “active” until March 31 of the following academic year. Organizations subject to disciplinary sanctions may not participate in the renewal process.

If an organization fails to participate in the renewal process, it will be marked as “inactive” and you will need to formally request reinstatement. If an organization is deemed inactive for two (2) academic years in a row, they will no longer be considered for renewal and may lose historical data as a result.

Please complete the following before you begin the re-registration process:

* Schedule an organization meeting to determine new student leaders, if applicable.
* Review and update organization bylaws and student roster as needed. Collect contact information for new student leaders.
* OUTGOING STUDENT LEADERS: Grant Position status to incoming student leaders and provide training on your organization's use of Engage. See more information here
* INCOMING STUDENT LEADERS: Prepare all updated materials and complete the re-registration process by April 30, 2021.
