Student Organization Annual Review

Each year, the Students’ Association Government and Wilson Commons Student Activities jointly administer the Student Organization Annual Review (SOAR). The goal of the annual review is to ensure student organizations are meeting expectations, assessing the activities they offer the campus, and are receiving feedback on resources needed to be successful. SOAR’s evaluation is also utilized by the Students’ Association Appropriations Committee (SAAC) during their budgeting review period. Please note, student organizations recognized during the fall semester do not need to complete the annual review.

The 2023 self-report questions and rubric will be added to this site by mid-October.

Helpful Tips

  • The entire executive board should be involved in the completion of the self-report. This is not a process that should be completed by one officer.

  • Include as much detail as possible. Tell us about your activities (what went well, what didn’t), co-sponsorships, and how your organization really strived to meet your mission.

  • Your organization is encouraged to review your self-report with your advisor before submitting.

  • Review your organization’s CCC website sooner than later. Check out our CCC FAQs for tips on how to make your CCC site sparkle and shine. Also, encourage your executive board to upload an image for their CCC profile. Organizations where all executive boards have a profile image earn points towards their evaluation.

Resources

Resources are available to assist student organization leaders in completing their self-report and assessment forms. These include:

  • Attend a SOAR Information Session hosted by the Student Organization Administration & Review Committee. 2023 information session dates and times to be announced

  • New to your organization’s executive board? You can review old SOAR self-reports and letters within your organization’s CCC dashboard. You’ll want to locate the “SOAR Report” folder within your “Files”.

  • Reach out to your organization’s advisor

  • Contact The Administration & Review Committee

  • Contact Wilson Commons Student Activities
