Located in the Kennedy Center, Student Programs houses several innovative programs open to students from all majors, including Intercultural Outreach and Model United Nations.
Creating a Student Organization
The Kennedy Center sponsors a number of student organizations which represent academic, thematic, and professional student interests. Each group must have a faculty advisor and submit an accreditation application annually, including organizational information, objectives, and a detailed budget. Groups must demonstrate linkages to the academic mission of the Kennedy Center and not overlap currently approved groups.
Applications are reviewed monthly for either a term, semester, or longer time frame. Accreditation in one year does not ensure continued support; groups "compete" for Kennedy Center sponsorship among previously established and new proposals for limited resources. Successful student organizations have clear goals, significant impact that supports Kennedy Center objectives, and submit a year-end report of their accomplishments.

Resources for Student Organizations
The Kennedy Center provides carrels, storage space, supplies, computer support, room scheduling, and print/web/pr support, as available. Approved organizations receive additional details as to how they can best use these resources in furthering their particular objectives.
