Documents and Disclosures

As a tax-exempt organization, the University Student Union (USU) must make the appropriate organizational documents available for inspection online or for copying at the corporation's administrative office during normal business hours. We have made our best effort to ensure that the documents posted on the Web site are the most recent versions of the USU's financial statements and disclosure documents.
