The SOU is directly involved in the operation, control, and supervision of all student organizations. It is concerned with the planning, programming, and identifying the existing resources that can be fully utilized by the different SO’s for the benefit of their members and the CLSU studentry.
Supervision of Student Organizations
The Student Organizations Unit takes charge of all recognized student organizations in the university. Supervision starts from the planning to the approval, implementation and completion of the different activities of the student organizations and the corresponding reports. In effect, the strengths and weaknesses of the different programs are identified and the student organizations are geared toward the realization of their objectives.
Monitoring of SO Activities
Monitoring includes coordination, attendance and participation in the different activities like meetings, initiations, fora and cultural/social/community service activities. Proper documentation of the activities is also required from the student organizations.
SO Recognition and Awards Night
The status of every student organization is evaluated yearly. As a result, those who meet the criteria are given recognition and a permit to operate within the school year. Furthermore, worthwhile activities and the outstanding performances of SO advisers and student leaders are merited in the Annual SO Recognition and Awards Night. This is usually held during the first semester.
Sending of Student Delegates to Trainings
Recognizing the potential of many students who would emerge as leaders, the Office of Student Affairs through the Student Organizations Unit sends student delegates to conferences, trainings and workshops. Interested students are selected through interviews and on the basis of their performance as student leaders.
Seminar/Workshops/Fora/and Skills Enhancement Training for SO Advisers and Leaders
The Student Organizations Unit in cooperation with the Guidance Services Unit sponsors leadership and seminar/workshop/fora and skills enhancement trainings for faculty advisers and student leaders. This aims to train and further enhance the potentials and skills of advisers and leaders in campus advising, organizational management, planning and implementation of the different activities of student organizations toward the attainment of the university goals in particular and the community in general.
