Start a New Student Organization
If you are not finding a student organization that fits your interests, you can start a brand new Tampa campus organization. Any student can start a new student organization at any time. Below are the steps to start a new student organization.
- Find at least 5 student members with a President and Treasurer and an advisor for
Note: The advisor must be a full-time USF faculty/staff member.
- A constitution (you will submit this in the registration form). Organizations are
strongly encouraged to use the Constitution Template. Click here (login required) for the constitution template and guidelines.
Note: Organizations affiliated with an external organization must submit a letter of affiliation with their constitution from the external affiliate authorizing their organization to form a chapter at USF.
- Attend a New Student Organization meeting prior to submitting the registration. Dates and times of these meetings are posted on the
CLCE BullsConnect profile.
Note: This 1 hour, in-person meeting will cover all of the basics of being an organization at USF including annual re-registration, room reservations, marketing, and more!
- Once you have completed these three steps, you are good to start the process of registration.
The new organization registration process will open up for 2021-2022 in August 2021.
