Dear Student Group Leaders,

Please read the following announcements carefully:


  *   Re-recognition


LEF/ARCADE Applications Open

LEF/ARCADE applications <https://cglink.me/2cy/s202> are now open and due June 1. The Large Event Fund (LEF) and the Assisting Recurring Cultural and Diversity Events (ARCADE) Fund are ways that you can get additional funding for events you hold that serve the broader MIT community! Read more about them here: <https://asa.mit.edu/group-resources/funding-large-events>.


Spring Re-recognition

The Spring Re-recognition cycle is now open, and is due May 20th at 11:59pm.

Groups recognized this semester, Club Sports, FSILG groups and Student Governments are not required to complete the re-recognition process. If your group does not fall into one of these categories, your group will be required to complete re-recognition. Please read through and complete each of the following steps for your group.

Step 1 - Officer Response: The group president, or other officer, fills out the Engage form found here: <https://cglink.me/2cy/s198>.

The officer must confirm that the group will not discriminate following MIT’s non-discrimination policy, agree to the MA state anti-hazing laws, confirm and define their group membership, and upload a copy of their constitution, complete with a member removal clause.

If you are an officer of multiple groups, you will need to complete the form multiple times. Only one response per group is required.

If your group does not appear in the dropdown, and is required to complete re-recognition, please email <asa-groups at mit.edu<mailto:asa-groups at mit.edu>>.

Step 2 - Member Response: Distribute the following Engage form to your members, and have at least five MIT student members confirm their membership in your group by completing this form: <https://cglink.me/2cy/s201>.

Students that are members of multiple groups will need to complete the form individually for each club.

The deadline to complete both steps of this process is Friday, May 20th at 11:59 PM ET. Groups with late submissions will be penalized with fines unless late due to extenuating circumstances, and will be suspended and/or derecognized if re-recognition is not completed at all.

To ensure groups are aware of their status in the completion of steps, we will be posting a running update on groups’ completion of re-recognition on our website: <https://asa.mit.edu/start-group/spring-re-recognition>. This will be updated every few days for the first week, and more frequently as we approach the deadline. If you have questions about this process, please email <asa-groups at mit.edu<mailto:asa-groups at mit.edu>>.


Please feel free to email <asa-exec at mit.edu> with any requests, questions, or other inquiries.
