Start a club. Become a leader.

Four 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: Complete Advisor Agreement Form

Submit an Advisor Agreement Form when you start a new club/org and any time your club/org gets a new Advisor.

For more information, visit our Clubs and Organizations Handbook.

Step 3: Create a Constitution

All clubs are required to have a written Constitution.
Click the link below for a constitution template. 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, completed your Recognition and Advisor Agreement Forms, head to step 4.
