FAQ

1. What are the eligibility requirements to register with CEO?
Any Registered Student Organization in good standing with the University that identifies as cultural or diversity-related is eligible to register with CEO. In order to maintain membership, each RSO that registers with CEO is required to have two officers attend one Center for Diversity and Inclusion workshop and one Center for Diversity and Inclusion Cultural Roundtable per year.

2. How much does it cost to register with CEO?
Nothing! Your organization just has to be eligible (see Question 1).

3. My organization is not registered with CEO. Can we still get support from CEO?
CEO aims to support all cultural and diversity-related events that promote diversity and inclusion at the University of Houston. CEO will support approved events in the marketing, planning, and funding of the event. All events sponsored by CEO should be open and free to all UH students. We highly recommend registering your organization with CEO if your mission relates to culture or diversity.
