How to Start a Club

Are you interested in starting your own club? The process is quick and easy:

  2. Identify two or more student coordinators who will be responsible for organizing the club.
  3. Sign up at least 8 students who are interested in participating in the club.
  4. Find a Faculty/Staff Advisor to serve as your club’s mentor and campus resource.
  5. Complete Club Orientation Class through Desire to Learn. After submitting the Charter Packet, both student coordinators will be enrolled in a Club Orientation Class through Desire to Learn and will need to complete a short series of modules.
  6. Create and submit a Club Constitution to indicate the mission and guiding principles of the club.
