Principles of Student Association Chartered Organizations:
The Office of Student Development and the Student Association Senate aim to support an organizational system which allows students to pursue their interests while focusing their energy in ways that serve Jesus Christ and promote community at Roberts Wesleyan College. Eight Principles were designed to encourage Student Association Chartered Organizations to be more purposeful in their activities and administration: Scholarship, Spiritual Formation, Purpose, Uniqueness, Community Inclusion, Membership, Leadership Development, and Evaluation/Assessment. Student Association Chartered Organizations should take special consideration in adhering to these principles.
