UMGC encourages and guides student leaders and members towards maintaining high-quality student organizations. UMGC Student Affairs has created a points-based system that measures and awards these organizations for providing multiple opportunities for members to participate. Some groups do this by holding regular bi-weekly or monthly meetings, while others do this by providing a variety of activities and events throughout the year. Student organizations earn Bronze, Silver and Gold status by conducting multiple activities throughout the year which equate to points. Student organization members can review point values for specified activities in the Student Organization Activities and Events document.
Student organizations at UMGC that achieve these statuses go above and beyond in their efforts to provide a variety of programming and opportunities for participation.
Bronze: 50 - 74 points
Silver: 75 - 99 points
Gold: 100+ points
Standings are determined each summer based on the current academic year’s activities documented in the Student Organization Update forms required for submission on December 1 and April 30.
The standings are recognized on the UMGC Student Organizations Web site, on the virtual community pages, and more.
Congratulations to the following groups achieving high standings during the 2020-21 year!
- Pi Gamma Mu Honor Society, Maryland Theta Chapter
