Prospective organizations must meet the following criteria before completing the application process:

  1. Have at least five members [defined as SHSU students, spouses of students, faculty, or staff]
  2. Have a constitution/bylaws (or guiding document) that governs the management of the organization.
  3. Have a SHSU faculty/staff advisor [defined as full-time or part-time - no graduate students, TA's, etc.]

After completing the process, submission contacts will be contacted by Leadership Initiatives to discuss the application and any issues that need to be addressed before the Student Organization Board review. In the event that the board needs more information for review, he/she will be contacted to appear before the board in person. Leadership Initiatives representatives then stay in contact with the prospective organizations on the Student Org Board outcome.

If approved, new student organizations must attend a 1/2 day training that covers the following topics: general organization management, risk management, money management, OrgLINK use and organization resources. Attendance at these trainings is granted to newly approved organizations and must be reserved through Leadership Initiatives.
