Student Organization Council

The mission of the Student Organization Council (SOC) is to provide student organizations and their members the support and resources needed to accomplish their goals. SOC is dedicated to building a stronger campus community by providing club members with opportunities to grow personally, professionally and artistically. 

The SOC is comprised of one member of each of the recognized student organizations. The SOC's executive board consists of a Chairperson, Community Director, and Finance Director.

SOC meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Loft | 916 S. Wabash Ave., 4th floor. Meetings are open to all Columbia College Chicago students, faculty and staff.
