To start a university-recognized student organization:
Begin by picking up a Recognition Packet from 307 Pratt Hall. Included in that packet is the procedure to follow.
Each organization must submit a constitution—a sample is included in the packet. Submit the constitution along with the Organization Recognition Form (opens as Word document) signed by the president and campus advisor—also included in the packet. The advisor must be a university employee which can be staff or faculty. Additionally, off-campus advisors may be added as a second advisor to the organization. Return both the constitution and Recognition Form to 307 Pratt Hall. The Office of Student Leadership and Greek Life reviews the constitution and forwards it to Student Government for review and approval. You are kept informed throughout the process should any edits be necessary. You can submit paperwork anytime during the academic year, there is no deadline. However, recognition is not conducted May through August.
