Welcome to the Student Organization Directory!
With more than 180 student clubs and organizations, there truly is something for everyone at SUNY Geneseo.
A college-registered Student Organization is any student-driven group whose primary membership and entire leadership consists of students enrolled at SUNY Geneseo; is formed in order to contribute to the students' personal development and the advancement of the College Mission; is non-credit bearing; and is officially registered with the Department of Student Life.
Full registration does not imply college endorsement of the positions and views of any organization. Rather, it implies that the institution accepts the organization’s mission as educationally valid and that the organization has complied with institutional registration and continuing registration procedures.
Full registration with the College does not permit the organization to act in the name of the university, to represent the university, engage in any contractual obligation in the name of the university, nor represent the organization as being an official part of the university.

Best Buddies at Geneseo
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Specifically at our Geneseo chapter, members work together with the executive board to plan and attend recreational and life-skill activities to give the LIVES students a more immersive college experience.
Peace Action Geneseo is a non-partisan student group dedicated to empowering student advocates to take action on issues of peace and justice. Through education, grassroots organizing, and action campaigns, we work to promote informed student activism on campus and build leadership among young people in the peace movement. We host events related to peaceful resolution of conflict, environmentalism, nuclear proliferation, and more. Out goals are to: TRAIN students to be effective social advocates and grassroots organizers. EDUCATE young people on peace and justice issues, while keeping students informed on recent peace-related news and events. EMPOWER students to campaign for action and policies that will help our communities and our world become a safer, more peaceful place. CONNECT students to a larger community of young and professional activists who share a similar interest for peace and conflict resolution.
Partners in Health Engage at SUNY Geneseo
PIH Engage at SUNY Geneseo is a chapter of the parent organization, Partners in Health. We work with our parent organization closely and are provided with the necessary resources and tools. We approach healthcare from an advocacy perspective, fundraising, and through community building and education. We advocate for increased funding for specific global and domestic policies that promote health as a human right (e.g., USAID’s bilateral tuberculosis account and The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria). At SUNY Geneseo, we will hold bi-weekly meetings to work together as a team, have seminars on important issues regarding health and healthcare, and have fundraising events throughout the school year.
Mock Trial at Geneseo
Mock Trial is a competitive Advocacy Club. Each year, we build two teams who compete against other colleges and travel to universities around the US with a fictional civil or criminal court case. As a club, we hone our public speaking and acting skills and emphasize learning legal theory, case law, and rules of evidence. Members of our club come from a range of majors, and our activities provide an excellent building block towards a law school education, but many of our members intend to pursue alternate careers.
Society For Human Resource Management
The mission of SHRM is to be a globally recognized HR professional society that exists to develop and serve professionals in the HR world while also advancing and leading the HR profession. SHRM is able to do this through providing education, thought leadership, certification, community and advocacy to enhance the practice of human resource management and the effectiveness of HR professionals in the organizations and communities they serve. To achieve the purposes of the Society there shall be no discrimination in individual memberships or chapter affiliation because of race, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, or veteran's status. Whether you are considering a career in Human Resources or just want to get some hands-on experience, The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is a great club to be a part of. The club is broken up into various committees tasked with achieving all goals of the organization, from recruiting new members to reaching out to the community to hear from knowledgeable speakers with HR experience. One of our goals this year is to win the Merit Award for another year in a row.
Community Health Alliance
The Community Health Alliance is an organization of students at SUNY Geneseo who strive to aid local, regional and global communities in their health needs. As students, we will address these needs with two main goals: creating healthier communities and gaining knowledge through experience in the healthcare field. By partnering with communities (working with them, not for them) we aim to work compassionately and effectively for those we serve by exchanging appropriate knowledge and resources.
