Guidelines for Collaboration
- Does the event cater to the entire Georgia State student population?
- Does the event support the mission statement and purpose of the Spotlight Programs Board?
- Is the event non-philanthropic? (Meaning the event does not require donations, and no profits from the event are used for donations.)
- Will the event be open and advertised to all Georgia State students and for the major benefit of the Georgia State community?
- Is this a Georgia State University recognized student organization?
Students who answered YES to all of the above are eligible for co-sponsorship!
If not, students will have to contact the president at Spotlight to determine their eligibility.
