Definition of Student Organizations

Student organizations are chartered by the University to allow current students to gather together in unison behind a shared mission. These organizations contribute positively to the campus, adhere to expectations for the entire Baylor community, and abide by all University policies governing both individual students and student organizations. Groups of students not chartered by the University may not affiliate themselves with Baylor University, the Department of Student Activities or other official university organizations. Many benefits are extended to chartered student organizations, such as the ability to reserve campus spaces, the ability to advertise for organization activities on campus, and the ability to apply for funding through the Student Government Allocation Fund.

*This new policy regarding student organizations may be found on page 5 of the 2011-2012 Student Organization Policy and Procedure Manual. This policy takes effect at the start of the fall 2011 semester.
