Student Activities: Starting a Club at UP
First of all, you need to have at least 10 fellow students who share the same interest. Having at least 10 members to start the club helps share the workload. A successful club needs a little organization and a lot of communication.
To become a recognized student organization you need to follow these steps:
- Make an appointment with the Assistant Director for Clubs and Organizations in the Office of Student Activities to discuss the recognition process and receive helpful and necessary materials.
- After carefully reading the guidelines for starting a club, the group must write a Constitution (see below).
- Clubs must have a University faculty or staff member agree to be the group’s advisor. Club members should discuss possible candidates and then fill out the executive worksheet (see below).
- The written constitution and completed executive worksheet form must then be submitted to the Office of Student Activities for approval.
- ASUP has appointed a Club Recognition Advisory Committee. All proposals for new clubs are reviewed by this committee. The committee then makes a recommendation to the Director of Student Activities about the approval of a new club. The Associate Vice President for Student Development then makes the final decision on whether the club will gain recognition status under the Office of Student Activities.
You can access the forms that need to be submitted by logging on to PilotsUP.
