The first step to forming a club is filling out the New Organization Application. Please note, you must be logged into CampusGroups to access the application. At this point you are stating all preliminary info for the organization, such as whether you're applying for Campus Life Recognition, what the name of the organization would be, the mission, as well as meeting, advisor, and e-board information. Please be as detailed as possible.
**Applications for Spring 2021 are now OPEN and will close at 12pm on Friday April 2, 2021. **
The Club Review Board will continue to meet via Zoom and will review applications based on volume received and a first come, first serve basis. The CRB meets on Wednesdays at 2:00pm and you must have a representative conduct the presentation.
The application to form a new club can be found HERE and will be reviewed on a first come, first serve basis. Due to the shortened nature of the semester and based on the amount of applications received, we cannot guarantee all applications will be reviewed this semester. Application review and presentations will begin the week of February 8th.
Please note, that room reservation spaces are extremely limited this semester so we suggest discussing with potential new members how and what your meetings and events will look like with limited resources. Storage space is also extremely limited and at this time, the Center for Campus Life does not have the ability to grant locker spaces to new clubs and organizations.
If the application is approved, then you will receive an email notification within 24 hours of the Club Review Board meeting with the decision. If you are approved you will be asked to do a 10-15 minutes presentation to the Club Review Board. The email will outline the next step of your process and what is required. If your application is not approved, then you have the opportunity to appeal. To do so you will reply to the email communication stating the reason for your appeal and outreach will occur from there. If your application is still denied after an appeal review, you’ll need to wait one full academic year before reapplying for club status.
Due to the number of applications that the Review Board receives it could take up to 3-4 weeks after the date of your submission to be reviewed. You can always check on the status of your application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, but applications are reviewed in the order they are received. The Club Review Board meets once weekly for an hour.
