Forming a New Organization
Congratulations on joining "The Pack!"
UW Tacoma has many great organizations, but perhaps you don't see one that meets your interests? Then we suggest starting a new one! Registering a new organization is simple:
Step 1: UW Tacoma students can join up with 4 other UW Tacoma students who will serve as the leadership in your new club.
Step 2: Find a full-time UW Tacoma faculty or staff member willing to serve as your adviser.
Step 3: Write a constitution for your Student Organization. Check out a Sample Constitution HERE
Step 4: Login to DawgDen, click on the "Organizations" link, and then click on "Register a New Organization."
Step 5: Have at least two officers attend an RSO Orientation Session (Or Club Camp). RSO Orientation Sessions will be held from 12:30pm to 1:30pm in MAT 103 on the following dates: October 15th, October 29th, November 12th, December 3rd.
Step 6: Receive confirmation from Student Engagement that your organization is granted registration!
If you are having difficulty with any one of these steps, please contact the Department of Student Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org .
