Starting a New Student Organization at Minot State University

Student organizations play an important role in student development on the campus of Minot State University. New student organizations are welcome to form at any time throughout the year. Forming an organization can be a challenging, but ve­­ry rewarding process. To ensure success, the Office of Student Activities has designed a process that will help your group form a solid foundation so that your organization can flourish and provide valuable experiences to your fellow students. Follow these steps to get started!

  1. First, a full-time Minot State University student must complete a ‘New Student Organization’ application form through the Office of Student Activities that includes a roster of ten full-time MSU students who support the mission of the proposed organization.
  2. The forming group must identify at least one Minot State University faculty or staff member to serve as the organization’s official advisor.
  3. The next step is to draft an official constitution and submit a digital copy to the Office of Student Activities. The document will be reviewed by the Student Welfare & University Affairs Committee (comprised of Minot State University students, faculty and staff) for approval.
  4. Once officially approved by the Student Welfare & University Affairs Committee, the new club can begin to request meeting spaces, club funding, a campus bank account and a club email address.
