Steps to Complete Club ReFuel

Student group leaders who receive recognition and/or have financial accounts at Columbia, as well as those student groups who wish to program on the Columbia campus, must complete the steps of Club ReFuel below. These steps MUST have been completed by or before Sunday, February 4th for the Spring 2024 semester. Student groups that failed to complete Club ReFuel on or before Sunday, February 4 will be placed on probation and lose access to LionLink and the Event Management System (EMS). Groups currently on probation that did not complete Club ReFuel on or before Sunday, February 4 will be derecognized.

Take the Student Organization Knowledge Assessment and complete the Student Organization Survey

The Student Organization Knowledge Assessment (SOKA) tests your knowledge of the critical policies you will use throughout your time as a student organization leader.

In addition, the Student Organization Survey (SOS) collects vital information for club operations. All four student leaders must take the SOKA in order to complete Club ReFuel; only one student leader per club should complete the SOS. Groups advised by Fraternity & Sorority Life do not need to complete the SOS.

Please refer to our financial policy guide, as well as the additional resources listed below, as you prepare for and take the SOKA. The SOKA will be available by the start of the semester.

Attend the Enough is Enough and Mental Health Student Leader Training

"Empowered Leaders, Compassionate Communities: Equipping Student Leaders to Create a Community of Care."

Enough is Enough, mandated by the New York state law, provides student leaders with relevant information and resources associated with domestic and dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. 

While in leadership positions, students may have the opportunity to support members who are in distress or experiencing stalking. During the session, student leaders will learn about the nuances of stalking and how it intersects with intimate partner violence and sexual assault, as well as how the trauma of stalking may present in different individuals. Student leaders will also learn strategies for connecting members who may be experiencing distress or stalking to appropriate resources and identify strategies for taking care of themselves through this process.

All four executive board members must each register individually for a time that works best for them.  There are no other student leader trainings that can count toward this requirement. 

Meet with Your Adviser

Before you meet with your adviser, please complete the Student Organization Knowledge Assessment, so that your adviser may review your results during the meeting. Please also register for the Enough is Enough and Mental Health Student Leader Training so they can answer any questions you may have.
