Start a club. Become a leader.

Three Simple Steps.

Step 1: File Recognition Form

Submit a Recognition form to Campus Life with signatures from 7 club members.

Keep in mind:

  • Reference our current club listings to ensure there’s not already a club similar to your idea.
  • You may not have a club for commercial purposes or primarily for the financial benefit of an external corporation or organization will not be recognized.
  • Proposed groups that are formed for the purpose of sponsoring a singular campus event generally will not be recognized.
  • For more information, visit our Clubs and Organizations Handbook.

Step 2: Create a Constitution

All clubs need a written constitution. Click the link below for a sample constitution.¬†It doesn’t have to be an exact replica, but must include all sections present.

  • All honor societies must receive written approval from the department with which they are affiliated.
  • Once you’ve created your club constitution and completed your recognition form, head to step 3.

Step 3: Register Your Club Online

Please upload your Recognition Form and Club Constitution in the registration link below.

You’ll be notified by Campus Life once you’ve been approved.

Once you are approved, you will need to:

  1. Sign up for a Club Email by putting in a Help Desk Ticket here
  2. Attend club trainings throughout the academic year (communication about club training will come from engage@plu.edu)
  3. Review the Club Handbook found here before your training session
  4. Follow Campus Life’s Instagram @plucampuslife for future updates
