The Student Organization Resource Center (SORC) is a multi-function space for use by Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) and their members. The SORC facilitates the diverse events, interests, and activities of the numerous student organizations by providing access to technology, equipment, space, and other materials. All of SORC’s resources and services are provided free of charge to student organizations. SORC is funded annually by the Services and Activities Fee (SAF) and much of the technology and equipment is funded by the Student Technology Fee Committee (STFC).
Student Organization Usage
Any UW Seattle student who is an officer or member of a student organization currently registered through the Student Activities Office (SAO) may use the services, supplies, and equipment provided by SORC. Members of student government entities (ASUW and GPSS) may also use SORC. To date over 500 RSOs utilize the services of the SORC over the academic year.
Created By and For Students Organizations
The Resource Center was established in 1998 by a few students who formed their own RSO and were dedicated to improving the resources available to all RSOs. The HUB provided a space in the HUB and the Resource Center ran a student-run service for several years under advising by HUB staff. In the mid-2000s the Resource Center became a formal unit within the HUB department and a full-time staffer was hired to manage the unit and its student employees.
