Start a Club or Organization
Hawkeye considers student clubs/organizations an important part of student development. Clubs/organizations provide students the opportunity to:
- Interact with faculty, staff, and students.
- Pursue special interests.
- Learn to work effectively with others.
- Become actively involved in extracurricular activities.
- Gain meaningful life experiences.
Types of Student Clubs/Organizations
Professional and departmental clubs/organizations are designed for students intending to pursue interests which contribute to their chosen career field and their career development.
Membership for scholastic honorary clubs/organizations is based on academic excellence and achievement.
Service clubs/organizations are designed for students wishing to contribute to Hawkeye and/or the community.
Special interest clubs/organizations are designed for students wishing to pursue a particular interest or vocation. Examples include political clubs, club sports, multicultural clubs, etc.
Process for Club/Organization Recognition
Official recognition of student clubs/organizations is granted by the Student Senate and Student Life office.
- Clubs/organizations interested in official recognition, funding, and various on-campus privileges must apply to the Student Senate by filling out the Request for Student Club/Organization Approval and Funding form [pdf]. This form is also available from the Student Life office.
- New clubs/organizations must draft a constitution in accordance with the guidelines established by Student Senate and the Student Life office.
- Clubs/organizations must understand and follow the rules, requirements, and policies established by the Student Senate and Student Life office.
Maintaining Club/Organization Recognition
Once recognized, clubs/organizations must maintain their active status by:
- Having current constitution and bylaws on file with Student Senate.
- Submitting a current list or officers and members to Student Senate each semester.
- Volunteering at one Student Senate sponsored campus event each semester.
- Having a representative at all general Student Senate meetings. Club/organization representatives are not allowed to vote on Student Senate issues.
Club/Organization Suspension or Recognition Revoked
A club/organization's recognition and privileges may be revoked by Student Senate, Student Life office, or the President's office. Clubs/organizations must follow the Process for Club/Organization Recognition to be re-established as a recognized student club/organization.
