Start an Organization
What do I need to start an organization?
It’s easy to start at new student organization at UNO. Before you begin the registration process, you need to have the following things:
- Two (2) members*
*Currently enrolled, UPF fee paying UNO students with a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA
- 1 UNO faculty or staff advisor
- An organization name and description
- An organization constitution
Getting Started On A Constitution
Your organization’s constitution sets up a governing structure that will serve as the foundation of your organization and ensure that it will outlast your time as a student at UNO. With this in mind, feel free to use our template, and thoughtfully customize it to your organization.
All student organizations must include the highlighted sections of this template in their constitution. The Discrimination policy statement, UPFF section, and enrollment requirements may not be altered. GPA requirements may not be lower than 2.0.
You'll also want to make sure that any voting procedures are clear and make reference to the type of vote needed to win (majority, simple majority, plurality).
