Relationship between Student Organizations and the University

Student organizations are considered to be affiliated with, but not official units of, the University. As a condition for continuation of the affiliation relationship, the organization agrees to abide by University regulations. In return, the student organization gains access to selected University facilities and resources.

Student groups may only identify themselves with the University by using the following format in the organization name: “Club XYZ at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.” The name must not infer University endorsement of the organization’s purpose or activities, or imply that the organization is speaking on behalf of the University or any of its divisions or departments. All letterhead stationery, invoices, and/or purchasing forms must include the statement: “Student Organization at UWM”
