Constitutions

Every student organization is expected to have an up-to-date constitution and/or by-laws on file at the Department of Student Activities and to operate within their constitution and by-laws. These documents are required to contain:

  • Name of organization (and any national affiliation)
  • Concise statement of purpose, goals, direction, etc.
  • Clear definition of membership requirements including minimum current GPA of 2.0 and cumulative GPA of 2.33 (see Academic Eligibility under Organization Management and Structure section)
  • List of officers, their duties, and requirements
  • Meetings and quorums to conduct business
  • Process for the assessment of dues and other finances
  • Amendments to the constitution
  • Advisors
  • Judicial Process

To submit constitution amendments for review, the student organization should submit the following items to Student Activities in person in hard copy form:

  1. A revised constitution with signatures from the organization president and advisor
  2. A document highlighting the revisions made from the previous constitution.

The Director of Student Activities, Dean for Student Learning and Engagement, and/or the Vice President for Student Life will review these documents and provide a confirmation decision to the organization via email.
