These clauses can be found in the Constitutional Guidelines located here.
Submit the New Organization Registration Form.
Your request will now be reviewed by the Student Organization Review Committee (SORC). The Committee meets the first and third Wednesday of each month. If your organization poses health, safety, insurance, or liability concerns you will be asked to present to the Committee. Organizations hoping to purchase and store equipment may be required to meet with the Committee. Organizations that require special licenses or groups that must follow specific local, state, or federal regulations to operate may be required to meet with the SORC. You will be contacted by staff from the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership to setup a time to meet with the Committee. It may take 3 to 5 weeks to hear from the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership about the recognition status of your organization. The SORC does not convene during winter or spring break and only meets once a month during June, July, and August.
If your proposed organization is approved your new organization will be required to attend a New Organization Orientation and Training Session as the final step of the approval and recognition process. You will be notified of session times, dates, and locations in a letter you receive from the Student Organization Review Committee granting recognition.
International travel, collection and distribution of medical supplies, or the promotion of private business by student organizations will not be approved by the Student Organization Review Committee. These three items are not comprehensive. Other organizations may be denied for reasons not listed above.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events.
