I Want to Start a Student Group

Interested in starting a new student group on campus?

We can help you with that! Your first step should be to take a look at the groups that already exist on campus. If you’re not seeing one that meets your needs, you can start one that does. This flowchart will be helpful as you determine the necessary steps for the type of group you seek to start.

Students wishing to establish first-time recognition with a group OR wishing to reactivate a group that has lost recognition must complete the following procedures before they can begin to function as a student group.

  1. Visit Spartan Connect and click on “Organizations” at the top.  Confirm that there is not another group that is similar to your own.  
  2. Review the regulations on becoming a group in the Student Group Manual.
  3. Find five (5) UNCG students interested in your group, each with a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher.
  4. Find a full time UNCG faculty or staff member to serve as your advisor
  5. Write a Constitution using the “How to Write a Student Group Constitution” information at the end of the Student Group Manual.
  6. Login to Spartan Connect using your iSpartan username. Click on “Organizations” at the top, then the “Register” button under “Register A New Organization”
  7. Submit your information through the online submission process for approval.  The approval process may take up to 4 weeks, though we endeavor to complete approval as soon as possible.
  8. Meet with the Assistant Director for Programs after your paperwork has been approved
  9. All sports groups must be affiliated with the Club Sports Council and meet with the Assistant Director for Intramurals and Club Sports in the Department of Campus Recreation

All social Greek-letter groups must be meet the criteria for establishing those groups (see the student group manual for detailed requirements)
