The Service Council
At the beginning of the 2010 – 2011 school term, a new bureau was established through the Florida State University Student Government Association. This bureau, the Office of Servant Leadership, was established to provide support by way of funding and assistance in planning event to service based organizations. Originally Service Corps, this newly established Office’s primary goal is to help facilitate service organizations by helping them apply for funding that the organization may not have otherwise received in order to make the vision and dreams of that organization become a reality.
In order to apply for funding through the Office of Servant Leadership, the organization must be:
- A registered student organization through the student Activities center
- The RSO’s president and treasurer (or at least one other member) must be financially certified
- The RSO must not have received a line item in this year’s budget
In addition to the above requirements, the most important aspect of all must be that the organizations primary goal must be service based, which benefits the members of the organization and the community as well. If these primary requirements are met by any organization that feels its mission is service based, we urge such organization to apply for funding through our office. If these primary requirements are not met however, but the organization does feel as if its mission is service based, benefitting the members of the group and the community, then we strongly recommend that the organization take the necessary steps to become recognized as a registered student organization, become financially certified, or whatever component may be missing.
For organization unsure about how to approach becoming a registered student organization or becoming financially certified, we encourage you to reach out to the Liaisons of the Office of Servant Leadership, as it is our duty to help you in any way possible when applying for funding. Applications for funding may be picked up at the front desk of the Dunlap Center and returned there once completed. If any questions should arise about the application process, please feel free to reach out to one of the Liaisons on the contact page of this website. Thank you for your time and we hope you take this opportunity into consideration.
The mission of the Office of Servant Leadership (OSL) is to preserve and cultivate the spirit and action of service, philanthropy, advocacy, social justice, and leadership at the Florida State University by providing a forum for students to encouragement to service-focused student organizations on campus; and organizing and implementing informative events that aim to enhance students’ awareness of important social issues.
