Are You Up-to-Date?

Regardless of age, Registered Student Organizations need maintenance. Here are a few things you can do to maintain your organization:

  • Complete a Registration Form

    • You’ll need to do this at least once per academic year.
    • Register every time you change officers or advisors. That way, you won’t miss any important communications from the Student Experience Center – or students interested in joining your organization!
      • The president and advisor of each organization should receive regular emails from the Student Organization Leadership Google Group, so if you don’t, let us know!
  • Apply for funding

  • Update your documents

    • Governing documents like Constitutions and Bylaws should be reviewed and revised regularly. This can be as often as every semester, but try to update any documents that are more than 5 years old.
    • If you’d like help reviewing your governing documents, we can help!
  • Create officer manuals

    • You can help your organization thrive after you’re gone by creating and maintaining officer manuals.
      • To prepare for new officers, keep a Google Doc, a printed page, or a binder of handouts for each position in your organization. Include any information that might help the next person to fill that role.
      • If you need help, the Student Experience Center is a great resource for getting started on this.
