The review process will be outlined and shared with organizations by the end of September. Review meetings will be held during the month of October. During the review process organizations will be asked to provide a list of current members, officers and advisors, outline the goals of the organization for the academic year (including events/programs), and for additional information regarding the function and focus of the organization.
