Starting a New Student Organization!

First…

Come up with an idea! Search on OrgSync to discover what interests you have that don’t already have an Organization. Already have an idea? Then you’re ready to go!

 

Next….

Find others with a common interest. To start a student organization you must have three current CMU student members! These are the people that will make up your first executive board.

 

Then…

Begin drafting a constitution. You can find a sample constitution that will be the guide to your Organization! Also consider reaching out to similar organization at other universities. They may be willing to share ideas from their constitutions.

The yellow sections are required, but the rest of it's up to you. The more detailed, the better off your org will be!

And…

Find an advisor! Any Central Michigan University Faculty or Staff member can serve as an advisor for your organization. Think about people who might have a shared interest in the idea. Having a great advisor is key to long term success.
