Model Constitution

This is a guideline for organizations to create their own constitution. Every group must have a constitution and will need to upload it into their online registration application. An organizational constitution must meet the following criteria to meet UK's standards: group must be non-discriminatory, only current students can be officers, membership requirements must be defined and the document must indicate how leaders are selected from term to term.

Registration Meeting

Registration meetings will take approximately an hour.  We will be spending the majority of time training on new registration processes on BBNvolved. It is encouraged that you bring a laptop or personal device to follow along. Student Organizations and Activities staff will be available during this time for questions and assistance on BBNvolved and registration.

 

Approval Process

Once both steps 1 and 2 are completed in your registration or re-registration process, the Student Organizations and Activities staff will review your portal submission. After all information is verified, your organizations registration will be approved. Please allow for 5-10 business days once ALL steps are completed.
