Committee on Student Organizations (CoSO)-Student Government - Carnegie Mellon University

Committee on Student Organizations

Welcome to the homepage of Carnegie Mellon's Committee on Student Organizations (CoSO). CoSO was established by Student Senate and the Graduate Student Assembly to oversee the recognition of student groups on the Pittsburgh campus. The committee is chaired by Alyssa Danesh, the current Student Body Vice President for Organizations, and is made up of fifteen graduate and undergraduate students.

CoSO helps to support student organizations by:

  • Making decisions on granting student government recognition to new student groups on campus
  • Re-recognizing existing student organizations once every academic year
  • Supporting and advocating for the needs of student organizations to student government, the Office of Student Activities, and the broader University administration
