The University is currently home to 13 student programs.  Each program shares with the YMCA a common mission in one or more of the following areas: environment, faith in action, international/cultural, or social justice.  Each semester, the University YMCA student board will review applications from groups seeking to become a part of the YMCA.

Is your registered student organization interested in joining the collaborative community of the University YMCA?  The University YMCA Student Board will accept applications to become an affiliated program of the Y from April 1 to April 20. All program applicants must show a history of collaboration with the YMCA and its student programs.  The Student Board will select applicants on the basis of these factors as well as capacity to support additional programs, compatibility, and the strength of the overall application.  Before applying, please review the program expectations.
