Student Organizations and Leadership

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 President, Community Director, and Finance Director.

Do you want to apply to be a recognized student organization for the 2021-2022 academic year? Apply here! The next application will be open from 1/24/21 until 2/4/21 at 11:55pm CDT.

Meetings are open to all Columbia College Chicago students, faculty, and staff. (Auto-captions and live auto-transcripts are included during all SOC Meetings, but alternative video accommodations shoud be emailed to at least two weeks before the meeting)
