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.

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.
College Republicans at Geneseo
The intent of the Club is threefold:\n1.) To make known and promote the principles of the Republican Party among the students at SUNY Geneseo.\n2.) To provide students with a conservative political outlet at SUNY Geneseo.\n3.) To develop political skills and leadership abilities among students in order to better serve the community.
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. The 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. All interested people are welcome to attend meetings, regardless of major or enrollment status.
SUNY Geneseo Model UN Club
The Model UN club holds weekly meetings which generally consist of at least one exercise meant to simulate our conferences in some way. Our conferences in a normal year would be at several colleges around the Northeast and one in Montreal, where each member of the team who comes participates in a separate UN committee simulation. The purpose of these is two debate the topic of that UN assembly meeting and over the course of the weekend, draft and debate UN style resolutions.
Outside of meetings, we work very closely with local, statewide, and national politicians to help them with their campaigns. We also have hosted many Geneseo Late Knight events on our own as well as in conjunction with several other politically oriented groups on campus. Members also have attended New York College Democrat conferences and conventions. Each year, members of the Geneseo College Democrats participate in a formal debate with the Geneseo College Republicans.
Political Affairs Club
SUNY Geneseo’s Political Affairs Club (PAC) will engage in active dialogue in recent and historical political activities. The club is a safe space to participate in a bipartisan-led current events discussion. The focus will be on the United States political happenings but may extend to those outside of the country. We also coordinate fun events to broader one's understanding such as political debates, a trip to Washington D.C. in the Spring, and movie nights.
