What do we do?

  • Help student groups write and edit constitutions in order to be recognized as official student organizations
  • Official student organizations gain privilege to reserving rooms, advertising with signs, and receiving funding
  • Assist groups with constitutional reviews and amendments
  • Re-approve constitutions of all groups every two years
  • Provide resources to student organizations to keep them successful!

How does Constitutional Renewal work?

All organizations must have their constitution re-approved every two years. The Chair of Organizations will contact each group and go through a simple renewal process! If you'd like to know when your Organization's renewal is, contact the Chair.
