How to Start a Club

Call for Student Club Applications 2020 is closed.

Do you have any hidden talents you would like to discover? Have you got any interests you would like to explore and pursue? Would you like to meet interesting people who share similar interests? Do you want to learn new skills and have fun?

Students at AUA are encouraged to get involved in various student activities outside of the classroom. You can join any existing club or start your own.

HOW TO FORM AN ORGANIZATION

All students who are interested in starting a new organization (club) must complete and submit a Student Organization (Club) Charter Form when the call for applications by September 30 at 23:55.

You can consult with the Coordinator of Co-Curricular programs at [email protected] to get answers to all your questions regarding student clubs and application procedures.

Please consider the following:

  • The club application should be submitted in a timely manner. If you missed the deadline, the form will no longer be receiving responses.
  • All the clubs must have an adviser. Any AUA full-time faculty or staff can be chosen for this position. As a future club leader, you need to reach out to a faculty or staff member with the request to become an adviser. Advisers assist the student organization in their activities, in understanding university policies, and resolving potential conflicts. Please read more about the Adviser's Role and Responsibilities.
  • All the clubs must submit their constitution to the Coordinator of Co-curricular Programs after their application is approved. Please see the sample of the Student Organization Constitution.

HOW TO JOIN A CLUB

The Office of Student Affairs annually organizes the Student Club Fair. This is a day when you can meet the leaders of approved clubs, ask any questions you may have and if you are interested,  you can sign up to become a member of one or more clubs.

However, if you missed the Club Fair, you can contact the club leader to learn about the procedures of joining the club. For more information about the existing clubs and contacts please click here.
