Be The Start of Something New: How to Start a New Club

Do you want to share your interests with the student body and want to start a club? Well, here is your resource with just three simple steps on the process of starting a new club on campus!

1. Meet With Director of Student Engagement and President of SGA

The first thing that you need to do is talk to the director of Student Engagement, Erica Devine, and the President of Student Government Association, Alycia Leconche, to have their approval for your idea of club and have some ideas on how to recruit members in preparation for your club meeting.

2. Register New Group on RegisEngage

Once you get approval from Erica Devine and Alycia Leconche, you need to go onto Regis Engage to register your group. When you login to RegisEngage, there should be a menu at the top of the page that has “New Group Registration.” There is a form to fill out on that page, including an Anti-Hazing forms. Be sure to have some ideas for who you want on your Executive Board and about 10 potential members.

When you register your club, you need to upload your club constitution, where you map out the rules, regulation, and mission of your club. If you are unsure of how to write a club constitution, Drew University has a wonderful sample club constitution that you can access here.

3. Present at SGA

Lastly, coordinate with Erica Devine and Alycia Leconche to find a date to present your potential club at SGA about what your club will do, why it is important to have this club, and your goals for the club. The SGA will approve or deny your club at the meeting, then you’ll have an official Regis club!
