Student Organizations: Start an Organization

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Why not start your own organization?

To start an organization you must:

  • Have five (5) current students interested in becoming members.
  • Find a UNL faculty or staff advisor.
  • Develop a constitution.

Things to think about before you begin:

  • How are you going to define your organization?
  • What will be the goals for your organization?
  • How do you plan to accomplish the goals?
  • What is unique about your organization?
  • Will the organization be affiliated with a department or office on campus?
  • Do you know of a faculty or managerial/professional staff member at UNL who would be interested in serving as an advisor for your organization?
  • Are there other student you know who would like to join?
  • What benefits will the organization offer its members?
  • What type of involvement commitment will members need to make?
