Please note that we accept student groups that are in the spirit of the IGB mission statement, which includes "representing and serving the needs of Columbia University student interschool organizations whose membership and mission is interschool in nature and includes a combination of graduate and undergraduate professional schools, groups and students who do not fall under the immediate jurisdiction of other governing boards or individual school councils."

There are no numerical or percentage requirements of group membership for IGB recognition, but the board reserves the right to approve or deny recognition based on the above mission statement.

The deadline to apply for recognition this semester is March 1, 2017.
