Create a Student Organization
Step 1: Complete the Student Organization Request to Organize Form
The Student Organization Request to Organize Form may be found on the MARQUEE student organization platform under the Forms tab or access the form here.
Submit the form on MARQUEE. Visit the Office of Engagement and Inclusion (Office of Engagement and Inclusion), AMU 121, if you experience any issues with submitting the form.
Step 2: Gather Electronic Signatures of Interested Students
After you have submitted the form, Office of Engagement and Inclusion will contact you with instructions on how to gain the electronic signatures of at least five (5) other students that are also interested in creating the organization. This will also take place through the MARQUEE platform.
Please note the semesterly deadlines below regarding when our process ends each semester.
Step 3: Meet with Office of Engagement and Inclusion
After your deadline for gathering electronic signatures, Office of Engagement and Inclusion will arrange a meeting with you to discuss plans for your organization, and to review the approval timeline. This includes, but is not limited to, creating an organization constitution and securing an advisor for the organization (a faculty or staff member that works for the University).
Please note that an organization will not be allowed to have a final approval meeting without securing an advisor for the organization.

Step 4: Organizational Approval
