Start or Manage a Student Club or Organization: EQUIP and EVOLVE

Start a New Student Club or Organization

Congratulations on taking the first step toward making your college experience even more rewarding by creating a new student organization at Central Piedmont. Here's how you get started:

  • Submit an application for new student organization recognition. Student Life staff will review and be in touch with you regarding next steps.

  • Read the Student Organization EXPLORE Handbook (PDF) for more detailed information regarding new student organizations.

  • Recruit ten charter members who are currently enrolled college-credit-seeking students at Central Piedmont (refer to step 3), and at least one full time faculty or staff advisor. Advisors must complete an advisor agreement, also found in step 3.

  • Submit the following student organization documents to Jennifer Conway in Student Life:

    -constitution and by-laws for your proposed student organization (sample constitution PDF).

    -new student organization charter roster. Include names, student ID numbers, and signatures of 10 charter members attached

    -student club/organization advisor agreement (PDF)

  • Once you've done steps 1-3 and submitted all your documents, the Student Government Association (SGA) will schedule a time for you to present your new student organization proposal. Attendance is mandatory and will be confirmed and scheduled with the SGA public information officer.

    SGA schedules those presentations on an as-needed basis. Student Life staff will be in touch with you about the date of your presentation and review once they receive your application.

  • After SGA approves your organization, you are required to attend student organization and advisor training. Upcoming sessions will be posted on the student life calendar.
