Regents' Policy Manual - Section 4.6: Chartered Student Organizations

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996


This policy applies to all chartered student organizations, including sororities and fraternities.


Chartered student organizations may be formed to further the common interest of the members of the group and the University community. Such organizations develop many opportunities for learning which supplement and reinforce the classroom activities of students. They also provide students with the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities and expand forums for discussion and debate.

Chartering of an organization does not constitute an endorsement of its programs or purposes by the University. Chartering is the approved means of gaining official recognition. Misuse or nonuse of a charter will result in the withdrawal of recognition by the University. Neither chartered student organizations nor their officers have the legal authority to enter into contracts on behalf of the University.


The President shall establish administrative policies and procedures for chartering student organizations, which shall be published in the Pathfinder.


See, Chartered Student Organizations Policy published annually in the Pathfinder.
