87-280 BOT 01-31-08 REVIEWING STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS (POLICY) A. Local Boards Responsibilities 1. Local Boards are encouraged to work with student organizations to insure accountability and nondiscrimination of student organizations or activities that make use of college facilities, or college resources, or attempt to represent the views of all students. This can be accomplished through meetings and/or hearings on various proposals presented by student organizations. 2. The Local Board may authorize a group or activity as having college sponsorship and may withdraw such authorization upon a showing that the organization or activity is not operating according to its approved constitution, or other formal commitment to the Board. 3. Any student organization under official college sponsorship shall lose its approval upon a showing to the Local Board or Board of Trustees that it has endorsed, campaigned for, or lent deliberate support to a particular candidate for Tribal or District Office; or that it has refused an equal forum to any publication or meeting regarding a policy or issue affecting the Oglala Sioux Tribe. 4. Student organizations in districts should raise their own monies if possible and deposit these funds into the OLC Business Office, where separate accounts will be maintained by the Business. Student Organization funds derived from tuition will be deposited into the OLC Business Office accounts. The Student Organization shall maintain cuff accounts. a) Approved student organizations are encouraged to develop operations, plans, and budgets specifying the conduct of their internal affairs. These plans should be explicit in terms of the approval of the expenditures of funds to Local Boards. b) It is advisable that student organizations have faculty sponsorship, with an advisor that can assist in the development of operational plans. This would permit the organization to seek assistance on organizational matters if and when required. c) It is advisable that student operational plans be filed with the OLC President. This is not an attempt to police student activities but a means of ensuring the rights of students and compliance with federal regulations.
