Student organizations are a vital part of campus life and offer significant opportunities and benefits to their members, the institution, the professional network, and the community.  Through participation in student organizations, students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, enhance their understanding of professional perspectives, and have a profound positive impact on their classmates, their profession, and the community.  The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences encourages its students to become involved in student organizations.   

In order to be recognized, student organizations must

  • Be open to all USAHS students actively enrolled in the University
  • Contribute to the advancement of the health sciences mission of the University
  • Serve a purpose not already met by another student organization or department on campus
  • Assume responsibility for their actions and the activities they sponsor.
