Organization Directory

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.

International Youth and Students for Social Equality

Young people, including students, face a dangerous future. The fraudulent economic “recovery” is worsening for the vast majority of the population. Imperialist war, even a nuclear World War III, looms around the corner. Climate change threatens the entire planet. These threats and others demonstrate that capitalism is a system in crisis, incapable of creating a decent future for youth, students, and workers everywhere. \n\nThe SUNY Geneseo chapter of the International Youth and Students for Social Equality seeks to mobilize students and young workers in the struggle for the only viable alternative to capitalism: socialism. The IYSSE is dedicated to the defense of democratic rights, opposition to war, and the arming of students, youth, and workers with a socialist perspective. To do so, we hold weekly meetings to engage students and workers and orient members toward the working class. \n\nAll interested people are welcome to attend meetings, regardless of major or enrollment status. Meetings include a political report on recent events given by an IYSSE member, highlighting relevant historical and theoretical issues. These reports and subsequent discussion are integral to our perspective for work on campus. Organizational matters, including planning events, are considered after discussion.

Roosevelt Insititute

We work on targeting issues in our community and brainstorming solutions for these problems through public policy.

Elementary and Secondary Education Association

ESEA is an academic club that is part of SUNY Geneseo’s Ella Shine Clear School of Education. ESEA provides opportunities for students to explore careers in the teaching profession, to become involved in volunteering and tutoring opportunities in the community, to communicate between faculty and students, and to increase awareness of educational issues as well as work to improve the quality of teacher education programs at Geneseo.

Pride Alliance

The Pride Alliance is a safe and inclusive space for LGBTQ+ students and their allies to find community, discuss the issues they face, and celebrate diversity. Our purpose is to unite SUNY Geneseo's LGBTQ+ community. Each weekly meeting centers around a different topic, giving members the opportunity to expand their knowledge. In addition to our regular weekly meetings, we have several annual events that draw hundreds of students each year. Second Chance Prom is a fall dance that invites everyone to dress how they want, bring who they want, and be who they want. Students who couldn't enjoy their high school proms due to prejudice and discrimination get a second chance here. In the spring, Pride and GLK host Drag Ball, a huge celebration of drag performance as an art form born from the LGBTQ+ community. This event includes both student and professional performers. Our other events include our recurring LGBTQ+? Fine By Me and Trans? Fine By Me panels, where students in attendance can ask panelists of specific identities about their experiences on campus. We also have a yearly cultural dinner, Pride Night, another celebration of LGBTQ+ culture.

Voices Uncovered

Voices Uncovered is dedicated to providing an encouraging and judgment-free creative platform for marginalized students to share their unique abilities and talents with their fellow Geneseo peers, faculty, and staff. This creative platform can range from student written scripts, performances, or showcases that enable students to highlight areas of concern and educate their fellow peers on issues that are important to them. Voices Uncovered will devote its time to process students’ experiences with micro-aggressions, stereotyping, and discriminatory discourse or actions. Members of the club will be encouraged to speak up about their experiences dealing with these issues. Voices Uncovered will further the conversation about marginalization and discrimination by actively challenging the status quo and collaborating with Geneseo student cultural groups. Geneseo is our home away from home and we see the value in fixing or drawing attention to areas of concern in this regard. In order to achieve this, Voices Uncovered will allot a space during our meetings for free-writes and open discourse. In this space, students can talk about recent events that have affected them on a personal or global level. We believe that any incident, no matter how miniscule it may seem, is worth discussing. Oftentimes, individuals who have experienced a form of discrimination or have been marginalized by their peers seek validation for their reactions and emotions. Additionally, Voices Uncovered will host group interviews focused on self-identity and marginalization that will serve as the foundation for the end of the semester performance geared towards highlighting these particular issues in an attempt to educate our Geneseo campus. Consenting individuals will also be published on our permanent online presence. Voices Uncovered is passionate about empowering our fellow peers to have their voices heard and inviting our community to listen.

International Relations Club

International Relations Club was created to promote and increase awareness of issues concerning International Relations as well as encourage more students’ involvement in these topics. We also wish to create a network of students majoring, minoring or with an interest in International Relations. In order to successfully fulfill the above goals, the IR club will undertake in regular meetings, semester interest meetings (1 Fall and 1 Spring) per yr, and trips to meet with alumni in cities such as Washington D.C and New York City. In alignment with a scholarly environment SUNY Geneseo’s chapter of International Relations will educate the community with current events specifically those related to international relations. In alignment with inclusivity SUNY Geneseo’s chapter of International Relations will work closely with any individual pursuant that they have an interest in the international community.

Student Coalition for Migrant Workers

By holding weekly meetings, hosting outreach events, and opening up the dialogue over immigration issues on campus, the goal of this club is to expose students to these issues which will hopefully lead them to become responsible citizens taking on an active role in discussion and community outreach programs. As a club, we have three pillars that will help us execute the mission of the organization: \n\n1) Cultural and community engagement \n2) Social justice and advocacy \n3) Language exchange program \n\nWe believe the best way to serve this community is to have a comprehensive framework in which students are encouraged to utilize their unique skills such as educational and linguistic skills and apply them in these areas best fit for serving the immigrant community.
