More than 200 student, faculty, and staff organizations are registered with CAPS. Organizations that register with CAPS have access to campus facilities and other resources. These organizations represent varied interests and activities including academic, professional, political, social, religious, recreational, and service groups. A complete list of organizations and detailed information on joining a Registered Independent Organization (RIO) is available from CAPS.
CAPS assists UH’s six chartered student organizations in achieving their goals and objectives; provides administrative services for more than 200 RIOs; fosters educational, recreational, cultural, and social programs and activities; provides trained, experienced advisers who teach leadership and organizational skills; and promotes responsible citizenship.
