So you want to start a new club? Read some steps listed below on how to get started!


1. Turning your idea into reality

  • Discover the purpose and objective of your club

  • Find people who are interested in your grou

  • Create an E-Board

  • Find an advisor, this person can be a professor or a staff member (Must be Full-Time)

  • Visit Engage or the CSI website for information about the New Club Registration Process

2. What is AU looking for in clubs? Your club must follow this criteria in order to be considered by CSI:

  • Inclusive

  • Sustainable

  • Interest within the AU community (at least 8 members)

  • No overlap with another club on campus


3. Steps

1. Attend a CSI New Club Registration open house!

3.  Submit an New Club Registration form on Engage (Form is open Monday, Feb 10th- Friday, March 6th)

  1. E-board members must attend Center for Student Involvement trainings. Large AUCC Orientation sessions for Fall 2019 have passed, but contact AUCC about having a smaller orientation on the following:

    1. New Organization Training

    2. Financial Training, Two E-Board members must attend one being the Treasurer

    3. 25 Live Training, bring a laptop

  2. Make a SON account and fill in all necessary information
