Academic departments have student departmental associations comprised of students in that discipline. In addition, there are other academically related organizations and discipline-based honorary societies.
Representatives from departmental associations work together on a college student council in each of the seven colleges. The organizations promote interaction between faculty and students by sponsoring speakers, seminars, social gatherings and other activities related to their disciplines. Students also have the opportunity to provide input regarding their educational experiences to their faculty and departmental chairs, as well as to their deans via the departmental associations and student councils, respectively. Student Life and Development staff members play a key role in coordinating major events such as Engineering Day, Health and Human Services Career Month, the Awareness Festival, College of the Arts Week, and the Nobel Laureate Lecture. AB 540 and other undocumented students are eligible for these services.
There are five student-run resource centers on campus. These venues are for affiliated student organizations to conduct program planning, peer mentoring, officer meetings, and post information regarding scholarships, service and internship opportunities. AB 540 and other undocumented students are eligible for these services.
