The Office of Student Activities actively seeks to engage students through the areas of leadership, service, wellness, and diversity in an effort to educate students with unique, challenging experiences that will empower them to transfer the lessons and skills they have learned to their peers during and after their journey at the University of Lynchburg.
The Student Life Policies Committee, composed of faculty, staff, and students, is a standing governing committee that reviews matters of policy pertaining to student activities. Policies and procedural guidelines adopted by the Student Life Policies Committee and the University are detailed in The Hornet student handbook or publicized by the offices of Student Development. These policies and procedural guidelines address such matters as responsibilities and privileges of recognized student organizations, reservation of campus facilities, admitting guests to events, posting, alcohol on campus, and freedom and order on the campus.
Campus organizations and individuals involved in student activities are expected to comply with all University policies. Violation of University policy may result in disciplinary action as outlined in the Honor and Student Conduct Codes and Regulations. Additionally, the University reserves the right to intervene and, if necessary, to cancel a program, activity, and/or process if it is found to be in violation of stated policies or procedures or is in conflict with the mission of the University of Lynchburg.
Students who wish to form a new organization must seek approval for recognition and organizational privileges from the Student Government Association and the Office of Student Activities (see “Procedures for Applying for Recognition”). Student groups not recognized by the University through this process may not operate in any such manner as recognized organizations, including participation in the activities of membership, recruitment, pledging, initiation, and collection of dues on or off campus. Neither members of unrecognized groups nor individual students may promote the goals, purposes, identity, programs, or activities of unrecognized, suspended, or charter-revoked organizations. Students who recruit, promote, or organize activities related to an unrecognized, suspended, or charter-revoked organization may be subject to disciplinary action under B4.5 of the Student Conduct Code.
