Starting a Club or Organization

If you are interested in creating a new and exciting club, please read the Club & Organization GuidePDF and complete the following steps:

  1. Set up a meeting with the Director of Student Activities
  2. Find at least ten (10) interested PMC students who will be the founding members
  3. Write a Mission Statement
  4. Find a Faculty/Staff Advisor
  5. Submit the proposal tot he Office of Student Activities for approval

Mission Statement: This is a paragraph that contains the fundamental principles, name, and purpose of an organization. The process of writing a mission statement will serve to clarify your purpose, delineate your basic structure, and provide the cornerstone for building an effective group. It will also allow members and potential members to have a better understanding of what the organization is all about and how it functions. The Office of Student Life requires that all clubs and organizations create a mission statement and submit a copy to the Office of Student Activities.

Please Note: Although formalized constitutions are not required for all clubs and organizations, it is important to keep a written record of the following items to be submitted to the Office of Student Activities:

  • Names of members
  • Faculty/Staff Advisor
  • Student Officers
  • Meetings (time, place, etc.)
