How to Form a Club at NRCC

Organizations may be established within the college for any legal purpose. Affiliation with an extramural organization such as a national society shall not disqualify the college branch.

A. A group shall become an organization when formally recognized by the official student and faculty committees. The following requirements shall be met:

  1. An official club charter or constitution and/or bylaws, a list of members when paying dues, officers, and the name of faculty/staff sponsor(s) should be submitted to the activities counselor. All changes and amendments shall be submitted for approval before they become effective.
  2. Where there is affiliation with an external organization such as a national society, that organization's constitution and bylaws shall be filed with the activities counselor. All amendments shall be submitted within a reasonable time before their effective date. All outside funds shall be treated consistently with Section 6.4.5 of the Policies, Procedures, and Regulations Operating Manual.
  3. Recognition of an organization implies neither approval nor disapproval of the aims, objectives, and policies of the organization. Any organization which engages in illegal activities on or off campus shall have sanctions imposed against it, which may include admonition, probation, restitution, and withdrawal of the college recognition.
  4. Membership in some selected college-related organizations shall be open to any qualified member of the college community who is willing to subscribe to the stated aim and meet the stated obligations of the organization regardless of race, creed, national origin or sex.
