Starting a Club

Thinking of starting a new club? Be sure to review the clubs already active on campus. If your club is unique compared to those already in existence, follow the steps below to start a club!


1) Talk to the Rensselaer Union Administration Office

If a similar club doesn’t already exist,  download information online and learn about the starting a new club process. Next, schedule a meeting with Assistant Director, Amy Corron, by emailing or by visiting the Administration Office in the Rensselaer Student Union , room. 3702.

2) Register as a new club

After discussing your idea with Student Activities you must register your group as a new club. Fill out the New Club Registration form [LINK] and the information will be sent to the Rensselaer Union Policies Committee and filed with the Rensselaer Union Administration Office.

3) Follow the Club Recognition Procedures

The detailed Club Recognition Procedure is located on Flagship. This procedure requires communications with the the Policies Committee, completing the New Club Evaluation, and a Club Starter Constitution. If you have questions about this process, you may contact the Policies Committee at
