Starting a New Student Organization
The Center for Student Involvement and the Student Government Association (SGA) encourages students to participate in organizations in order to further develop their leadership skills. We recognize as times change, the interest of students change—ultimately affecting the organizations on campus. That’s why we’ve created the following process for students who are interested in starting a new organization and obtain recognition.
How to Create a New Student Organization
Review current student organizations on MyAULife and their mission statements to ensure your organization is unique.
Get signatures of ten interested undergraduate students for membership. At least seven students must have a class standing of junior, sophomore or freshman.
Create a constitution for your organization. Review sample constitutions on MyAULife to help you get started.
Submit a completed new organization application on MyAULife at the beginning of the semester, and attach any necessary documentation.
If approved, your organization will enter a cohort with other new organizations and mandatory training will be determined by the Center for Student Involvement.
