Student Organizations

Student organizations offer those individuals who desire campus community involvement an opportunity to meet and socialize with other students as well as members of recognized student organizations. The Student Affairs office provides services and resources for recognized student organizations such as CMN Student Senate, Native American Student Association, and Student Housing Organization. 

Student Senate

The Student Senate is designed to represent the CMN student body by providing a means of governance for student organizations, student input, and participation in the affairs and activities of CMN. The Student Senate serves the students as a forum to address concerns, to promote policies, to encourage community service, and to develop student leadership. 

Tribal Leadership Circle

The Tribal Leadership Circle (TLC) which emphasizes native culture, respect, and community service provides the CMN campus with a further opportunity to interact socially as well as provide an outlet to obtain leadership skills. TLC holds regular meetings throughout the trimesters to plan and conduct activities, community service, and fundraisers.  TLC is an organization for Native American students to take part in traditional activities, fellowship together, while reaching out to the college and local communities while providing a support system to help them through the college experience as a social outlet.

AISES is part of a nationally recognized organization. Students recognize that the knowledge of the elders included the importance of understanding the natural world. It is with respect of the past and pursuing future innovations in science and related fields that AISES students can give back to their community. Along with the quest of scientific research and career development, AISES members participate actively in community service projects on campus and in the local area.
