Student Organization Advisory Review Committee-SOARC


The Student Organization Advisory and Review Committee, known as SOARC, deals with all matters relating to student organizations at the University of Rhode Island.

SOARC reviews all applications for recognition as a University student organization. After a group has been recognized, it must apply for re-recognition every fall semester during the annual Re-Recognition Process.

SOARC maintains and interprets the Model Constitution, the document outlining the fundamental standards by which every student organizations is required to operate.

In addition to recognizing student organizations, SOARC functions in an advisory capacity, oversees group activities to ensure they are operating within their stated purpose, arbitrates disputes, and administers disciplinary measures (including de-recognition) when an organization violates policy.

SOARC holds a monthly meeting of all URI student organization Presidents– called the President’s Meeting, on the first Monday of each month during the academic year.

Meetings are every Monday 3:30 pm in the Memorial Union, room 313. Please sign up for a meeting before hand.


Search will remain open until filled. First consideration will be given to applications received by August 7, 2015. Second consideration may be given to applications received by August 17, 2015. Applications received subsequent to the second consideration date (August 17, 2015) may not be given full consideration.
