Organization Registration is the beginning of the process for a student organization to become registered at the University of Houston. Every organization must send at least one top officer (organizations may send additional officers) to the meeting to learn about the policies and procedures of becoming a registered student organization. Both new and existing student organizations must attend the Organization Registration meeting every academic school year. Each session will last one hour to one and a half hours. Please note that students arriving more than 10 minutes late to the meeting will not be counted as attending the meeting.

Org & Risk Management Education

Students can attend the organization orientation, or risk management education, or both. One of the top three officers must attend the organization orientation, and all three top officers must attend the risk management education session. However, it is highly recommended that all three top officers attend the full 2 hour session. Please note that the top three officers do not have to attend the same session. All training sessions will be held in the UCN Senate Chamber room 204 (unless otherwise stated) and will begin promptly. Students arriving more than 10 minutes late to the training will not be counted as attended. University of Houston Faculty and Staff advisors must complete one risk management training. Once an advisor has attended the training, he/she will not need to complete the training in subsequent years.

Lastly, student organizations will not be considered “registered” until they have thoroughly:

  • Completed the online registration form
  • Attended all required trainings
  • Updated their Get Involved roster to include the names and titles of new and/or existing top three officers.

State Mandated Registered Student Organization (RSO)
Risk Management Training

Per State of Texas House Bill 2639/Senate Bill 1138, enacted by the 80th Texas Legislature, all registered student organizations at the University of Houston attend an annual risk management training. The top three student leaders – the three named on your organization’s registration – are required to participate in this training. RSOs that do not complete the required training will not be registered by the University.

The state mandated Risk Management training provides students and advisors with information about alcohol and drug use and prevention, sexual harassment and sexual assault prevention and response, fire and fire arm safety, safe travel, managing events in a safe fashion, and services for students with disabilities. The Center for Student Involvement hosts the state mandated Risk Management training with contribution from professionals from UH Wellness, Counseling and Psychological Services, Equal Opportunity Services, Environmental Health & Safety, etc.

This training provides compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) and the Texas House Bill 2639, and is intended to help all our student leaders and advisors safeguard our students.
