Interested in Starting a New Club? 

 Consider these questions first: 

  • Is there a current recognized AU organization that shares a similar mission or goal?  Can your organization work together with the existing student organization?  
  • Have you made the effort to determine if any existing programs offer similar services? 
  • Are there adequate university resources (space, funding, potential participants, etc.) to support the group’s activities?
  • Are there significant safety risks associated with activities your organization will sponsor?
  • Will AU benefit significantly from the existence of your organization?
  • Is your organization sustainable?  Will it exist after you graduate? 

If after considering these questions, you determine that you would like to create a new club, please download and complete the New Organization Packet. The Office of Student Activities is available to assist if you have questions.
