Charter student organizations that are not otherwise adopted by the Academy and equip them with the resources to provide programs and events that enrich campus for IMSA students.
Chartered clubs in the spring to give them summer planning time aid Student Council’s own planning process with the eventual goal of chartering all groups in the spring.
Presented all the chartered clubs and other interested student organizations to the student body in one fair to allow sophomores to identify the groups that they have interest in.
Advisor Appreciation Week
To show gratitude towards the wonderful club advisors, Student Council created Advisor Appreciation Week. Advisors are typically overlooked although they are tasked with buying all the supplies a club needs to go through with an event. Advisor Appreciation week consists of Student Council distributing a gift(framed club pictures, mugs, and cards) to advisors of each Student Council – sponsored club as well as to co-curriculars. This week is meant to give gratitude to advisors from Student Council on behalf of clubs on campus.
The probation process acts as a two-strike system where a club would be placed on probation first if it was deemed inactive and if it didn’t meet expectations while on probation, it would be dechartered until the next academic school year. The 2018-2019 Student Council’s cabinet kept the minimum expectation of a club to be at least 1 event per quarter. Clubs are also expected to complete Transition of Power for the following year.
Club Presidents Guide
Created a guide for leaders of student organizations that covers operational tasks specific to IMSA as well as strategies and tactics for running an effective group.
Club Leaders Collective Facebook Page
The purpose of the page was to disperse club guidelines and expectations to IMSA’s Club Leaders in an organized and centralized fashion. It is also a medium for club leaders to communicate with one another as well as for Student Council to advertise events such as Club Fair and Advisor Appreciation Week. Important documents such as the Club President’s Guide, Universal Pipeline System (UPS) forms and other useful documents.
