Form An Organization
The Office of Student Activities is responsible for the general supervision of student organizations on the Morgan Campus. The Office assists individual students as well as student organizations in the creation, implementation and evaluation of social, educational, cultural and recreational programs that contribute to the academic growth and personal development of all students at the University.
Any student group wishing to be officially recognized as a student organization at Morgan State University must file the following information with the Office of Student Activities:
- A letter requesting consideration
- Name of proposed organization
- Purpose of organization
- List of officers
- Membership requirements
- Letter from a faculty or staff member consenting to serve as advisor
- Constitution and By-Laws
- If the proposed organization is affiliated with the national organization, written consent by the national office shall accompany the application for recognition
- Types of activities planned
- Membership dues, if applicable
If the purpose, program and constitution of the proposed organization is not in conflict with the policies, rules, and regulations of the University, and if materials from the proposed organization are not in conflict with the policies, rules, and regulations of the University, materials from the proposed organization shall be forwarded to the Student Government Association, the Director of the McKeldin Center and Student Activities, and the Vice President for Student Affairs. The Vice President for Student Affairs may elect to approve an organization on a trial basis stipulating that one year must elapse from the date of approval before a final decision for recognition will be made.
Upon final approval, a permanent file will be kept in the Student Activities Office and the proposed organization must comply on an annual basis with the existing standards for registration of organizations.
During the month of September, an officer of each existing organization must verify that the organization is still active. Completion of the registration form by a representative of each organization will verify that the organization is active. Registration of all student organizations will occur in the Student Activities Office. When each organization has submitted its registration form and membership roster, the president of the registered organization will receive a registration card which entitles the registered organization the opportunity to apply for funds from the Student Government Association, to use University space for meetings and activities, and to be affiliated with the University.
