Student Organization Officer(s): As used here, the term officer includes anyone who holds a position of trust, authority, or command within an organization. A student organization officer is further defined as any student who assumes a leadership position within an organization with day-to-day responsibility for conducting the business of the organization, usually with a title and role responsibilities. Student organization officers act as authorized representatives for the organization’s membership and in so doing bear some personal responsibility for the organization. All registered student organizations at UWM have a minimum of four officers enrolled on a fee-paying basis at least halftime (undergraduate six credits, graduate four credits) in order to comply with registration and recognition requirements.

The primary officers for each organization are responsible for informing others in their organization about University policies and procedures, and agree to comply with them.

The University is not responsible for debts or other liabilities of student organizations. All new and continuing members of organizations, as well as businesses where products and services are ordered, should be informed of this. Officers of organizations may be held liable for financial obligations incurred by the organization.
