Partnered Student Organizations are recognized FSU student organizations whose purpose actively aligns with the mission and vision of the Center for Leadership & Social Change. Therefore, the center strives to foster strong reciprocal relationships with these organizations by providing educational opportunities, support and resources.
Become a PSO
The Partnered Student Organization program at the Center provides organizations with the opportunity to network with multiple student organizations, work space, and access to the Dunlap Student Success Center or Globe for room reservations to host meetings.
In addition, the center hosts round tables featuring guest speakers from around campus to give presentations on their positions, their leadership skills, and provide organizations with advice on how to lead their own organizations. These round tables also provide opportunities for student-led organizations to speak about their organizations and what they do, discuss among themselves best practices on how to solve problems within their organizations, and help one another. Organizations will have access to copy machines and access to the center listserv to broadcast information about PSO initiatives.
Applications are due April 7, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. For more information, contact Jason Montalvo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
