The Club Genre Councils provide avenues for clubs to learn from each other, act as a liaison between clubs and the Student Activities Office, and promote clubs within their Genre Council throughout the Rice University community.
The mission of the Club Genre Councils is to facilitate interactions between clubs and serve as a source of support and advocacy for registered student organizations on the Rice University campus.
The goals of the Club Genre Councils include improving communication, increasing collaboration potential between clubs, and to prevent club duplication by ensuring new clubs demonstrate they are unique from existing clubs on campus.
In addition to posting club events on OwlNest, clubs can also market their events by emailing the different Club Genre listservs (shown below).
You can now search for clubs based on their genre in OwlNest!
On the “Organizations” page, you can select a genre from the “Categories” drop down menu. All of the clubs that have registered as being affiliated with that genre will then be displayed.
Access to Resources
Each Genre Council has a Lead or Co-Leads who work to plan and facilitate the Genre Council meetings, maintain the Genre Council Listserv and act as a liaison between the clubs within their Club Genre and the Student Activities Office. They will also help budget for, plan and execute any events the Genre Council would like to host, such as networking events with alumni or collaboration events.
Only individuals who are in good standing with Rice University and are a member of a club that has successfully completed renewal/registration will be able to hold a Council Lead/Co-Lead position. Individuals do not have to be an officer of a club in order to be considered for a Council Lead or Co-Lead position.
