We all hope you’re having a fantastic Fall semester so far. We apologize to share the solemn news that our organization has been frozen and will not be able to access funds available for all other student clubs at this time. As a result, AUMCC will not be recognized as a student organization for this year.
We found out about this news last week when the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) informed us that we did not complete our registration, and our club leadership is currently looking into the issue. We are currently working to resolve it with the university administration given that we’ve fulfilled all the required steps to recertify our organization to the best of our knowledge, much like how we have done in every year prior to this one. We will keep you all updated on the situation as we work to try and rectify this situation to the best of our ability.
In the meantime, we will continue our best to maintain and support our club’s mission which is to support American University’s military-connected students. As a chapter of Student Veterans of America (SVA), we believe it’s our greatest responsibility to ensure that we meet the unique needs of student veterans and our military-affiliated students. Not only that, but we will continue to link student veterans with resources, assistance, training opportunities, support, and social engagements to improve academic, social, emotional, and professional experiences, success, and overall well-being. Nothing will stop us from achieving this mission no matter which obstacles are emplaced in our path.
Regardless of what the future has for our club, please rest assured that we will do everything we can to represent our student veteran and military-affiliated community.
