Recognized Student Groups

Student groups that are recognized by the Arts and Sciences Graduate Council (ASGC) receive several benefits. To apply for ASGC recognition, your group must be unique and have a purpose that cannot be fulfilled by other existing student groups. Your group cannot be directly supported by a University department, program, or office, or have ties to an existing student group. Groups that are affiliated with a national organization and have recognized chapters at Columbia (such as Amnesty International) are ineligible for ASGC recognition.

For a list of student groups recognized by ASGC, see the ASGC website.
