Student Orgs Renewal 

University Rule 6-401A requires that all Recognized Student Organizations must renewal their OrgSync profile on an annual basis in order to remain in good standing with the Department of Student Leadership & Involvement.  All OrgSync profiles are set to "expire" the Friday at the start of Spring Break. To renew for the 2019-2020 academic year, student organizations shall submit a registration request (OrgSync profile update) starting on March 8.

The deadline to renew an organization and update the organization's OrgSync profile is June 1 at 5 p.m. If a student organization fails to update their profile by the deadline, the organization's OrgSync profile will be set to "disabled". After a full semester of being "disabled", the student organization will forfeit their recognition, and the OrgSync profile will be deleted.

It is recommended that student groups update their information at the end of both Fall and Spring semesters in order to ensure that new organizational leadership does not miss important deadlines and correspondence from the department.

Constitution Updates

Student Organization constitutions serve in the capacity that any member of the organization can pick it up and know exactly how to run the organization. This is a simple and useful self-governance document to archive and clearly state what the rules are for your student group. Each constitution must state the name of the organization, a description of the group, membership criteria, membership and officer responsibilities, and a nondiscrimination policy verbatim with the University's official Policy 6-400, Section II-E.

Please see the Department of SLI's Constitution Checklist for a full description of the constitution requirements. 

Advisor Review Request

For Recognized Student Organizations (Sponsored & Affiliated required), please list the name, title, email address, and phone number of the on-campus Advisor on the registration request. After the request has been submitted, they will receive an OrgSync notification via the email address provided. They will need to click "Review Now" in that email to submit approval. After reviewing the inputted information, they will click "Submit Forms" on the right side of the page to provide information about their role as the Advisor. After they submit that information, OrgSync will flag this registration request as reviewed by the Advisor, and our office will complete the final review. 

Membership Exceptions

Federal law permits the following categories of student groups to select members based in part on their gender:  1) Social fraternities and sororities that are exempt from taxation under section 501(a) of Title 26 and are recognized by the University; and 2) certain sports groups including boxing, wrestling, rugby, ice hockey, football, basketball and other sports the purpose or major activity of which involves bodily contact. Only student groups falling within these categories may limit membership based upon gender. A sample constitution guide is available for reference.

If you make changes to your constitution, please email upload it to your files on OrgSync titled: YourStudentOrgName.Constitution_date
