Welcome to the Registered Student Organization Handbook

The Registered Student Organization (RSO) Handbook is intended as a resource guide and policy manual for officers, members, and advisors of Grand Valley State University RSOs.  This is also designed as a resource for students interested in forming new organizations. The handbook was developed by staff members in the Office of Student Life and by members of the Student Organization Review Board (SORB).  Comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome; please direct them to rso@gvsu.edu.

The top navigation bar will direct you through the different sections and subsections of the handbook.
