Students interested in starting a new student organization should follow the process below:

  • Meet with the Director of Campus Life to discuss ideas and receive information (Bartlett Hall, Rm 306).
  • Both Interest Group and Chartered Organization applicants then complete a Student Organization Profile, including a statement of purpose and member list. Chartered Organization applicants will also submit a detailed constitution.

  • The application process is complete and the new organization authorized after receiving final approval by the Maryville College President.
