Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs)
Student Organizations are a vital part of the out-of-class experience at UNL. Student Involvement supports the work of over 500 student organizations that cover a wide range of topics.
NvolveU is a web-based Student Organization database and tool. Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) can advertise events, communicate with members through roster management, complete direct reservations and much more.
To log into NvolveU click here. Students, log in using your MyRed username and password. Faculty and Staff, log in using your NU ID number and Firefly password. If you are interested in simply viewing the available UNL student organizations, select the Student Groups Tab in the upper left corner on the NvolveU site.

Poster Route--Available March 2014
We’re doing the hard work for you by distrusting posters for your events. If you’d like you to take advantage of this service, please drop off 56 posters for the general posting boards or 205 posters for the general posting boards AND every residence hall floor to Student Involvement, 200 Nebraska Union by Friday at 5 PM. The posters will be approved and distributed by Tuesday of the following week. Please note, at this time, this service is for City Campus buildings only. We hope to expand this service to East Campus next semester.
Student Involvement is proud to offer a Consultation Desk for its RSOs. Students planning events, needing to complete an annual review form, or looking to do direct resevations will start all of these processes at the desk. The desk is staffed Monday through Friday by student staff members who can help you navigate any request you might have. At the desk, we also offer our Brief Orientations for newly elected RSO Officers or Executive Boards. Brief Orientations offer insight into important policies and resources effecting RSOs. And don't forget about our Creation Station; a resource room filled with button makers, craft paper, industrial size markers and even a helium tank. We'll charge your Student Organization Financial Services (SOFS) account for any supplies used so you don't need to worry about coming with cash. Contact Information

Vendor Solicitation Policy
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln does not endorse or assist vendors in selling their products or services to Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) through the NvolveU site. For the purposes of this policy, a "vendor" is a person, group of people, or organization (whether profit or nonprofit, off-campus or on campus) selling or promoting a product or service. The "vendors" who are selling or promoting their products or services shall not contact RSOs (officers, advisors, members, or alumni) through NvolveU. All information distributed to RSOs must be coordinated through the Student Involvement office. If an on-campus organization wishes to promote an event, please consider using these alternatives: (1) RSO Notices Newsletter, which is mailed to RSO leaders and advisors twice a month. Requests should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; or (2) Next@Nebraska Newsletter which is emailed to all students every Sunday, and may be submitted on-line at http://newsroom.unl.edu/announce/. The deadline for submission is the Sunday before. If you have any questions concerning this policy, please contact Student Involvement 402-472-6797 (City Campus) or 402-472-1780 (East Campus).
