Abstract

The Resource Center for Student Organizations is a UW campus program that aims to facilitate the diverse interests and activities of the numerous campus student organizations/Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). It is due to RSO usage that the Center is seeking to continue to provide the resources to support student organizations.

Category Justification

The Resource Center houses a very busy computer lab with 13 computer workstations serving over 500 RSOs this year. These computers and monitors were purchase with the help from Student Technology Fund in 2012. With the busy use of computers at Resource Center the computers are starting to show signs of ware and tear. Student log in times are longer, printing from work stations to printers has become very slow. This will progressively worsen as more registered student organization continue to utilize the computer lab at Resource Center.

Background

The Resource Center for Student Organizations is a UW campus program that aims to facilitate the diverse interests and activities of the numerous campus student organizations. These campus groups, known as Registered Student Organizations ("RSOs"), play a vital role in the University community. The Resource Center for Student Organizations was established to provide the resources RSOs need to be viable and effective as active members of the University community. The Resource Center was created in 1998 to improve the resources available to student organizations on the UW campus. Resource Center believed that providing access to resources in a convenient location that is central for all student activity, namely the HUB would tremendously improve RSOs’ abilities to plan events, research information pertinent to their activities. Communicating with members and other groups, effectively would help to recruit new members and thus promote a more dynamic campus life. All of the Resource Center’s resources and services are provided free of charge to RSOs.

Benefits to Students and the University

As a partial measure of student organization usage approximately 567 Registered Student Organizations copied, printed and created meaningful materials at Resource Center for their clubs
In 2012-2013 school year. The number of RSOs who copied and printed at RC in 2012-2013 was 567
