Student Club Constitution and Bylaws
Each student club should have a copy of its updated constitution and bylaws on file in the Student Life Office. Please note, there are several things that are required in all student club constitutions. If your club’s constitution does not include the features in bold, then it is suggested that a constitutional update occur. This should be completed by the end of the fall semester. If you change your constitution, please provide the changes to the Student Life Office immediately for approval.
Club Officer Elections
The selection of officers is important to sustain the club’s purpose, goals and objectives, and when planning events and activities. Each club will have its own election process that is fair and open. There are two models that can be applied:
1. Club members can appoint officers or
2. Conduct a formal election process where candidates’ campaign for a position and club
members cast a vote for their choice
The election process needs to be completed, and a listing of club officers needs to be submitted to Coordinator of Student Engagement as soon as possible.
A club that has not had any meetings or activities for two consecutive semesters will be considered inactive and ineligible for funding from SGA. Contact the Coordinator of Student Engagement for information on how to reactivate a club.
