Starting a Student Organization

Before creating a new student organization on campus, please check the Organization Directory to confirm there isn’t one like what you’re proposing. If there isn’t, follow these steps to get started:

  • Get the right people together. You’ll need at least 5 students and 1 advisor.
  • Draft some governing documents. These can be a constitution, bylaws, or both.
    • If your group will be affiliated with a national organization, check to see if that organization has pre-made documents for you to use.
    • If not, we can provide an example to help you create new governing documents.
  • Have your advisor sign an Advisor Agreement which will be submitted with your group registration.
  • When your governing documents are ready, complete the group registration in Trojan Engage.
