Registered Student Organizations

What is a Registered Student Organization?

Students at Fort Lewis College have the right to form, join and participate in groups that promote common interests. Fort Lewis College considers this type of assembly to be essential to a student’s development and a cornerstone of their educational experience.

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) are groups whose membership is comprised mainly of full-time students at FLC, as well as faculty, staff or individuals from the community. Only full-time FLC students may serve as officers and have controlling interest in the organization. RSOs may be academic and career related, cultural, faith-based, service, and interest specific.

RSOs are affiliated with, but not official units of FLC. RSOs must agree to abide by all College regulations and establish their affiliation with the College on an annual basis via the RSO registration process administered by ASFLC and the Financial Allocation Board (FAB).

Please browse through our Registered Student Organizations using the links below. For more information please contact The Leadership Center in SU 171 or (970) 247-7394(970) 247-7394.
