Proposals for new student organizations are reviewed by the Inter-Club Council Executive Board. To help begin well in and in order to apply for funding during the spring semesters, new student organizations are encouraged to apply for approval during the beginning of the Fall semesters. However, new organizations are allowed to start at any time.
The following criteria are considered by the ICC when reviewing proposals for new student organizations:
The proposed student organization has received ICC approval if more than 50% of the voting members present at an officially called executive board meeting of the ICC vote in favor of approval.
If a proposal is denied by the ICC, the proposed student organization may appeal as follows:
If a proposal is denied by the ICC, the proposed student organization may appeal as follows: Submit a written appeal to the Dean of Students by email within seven business days of the ICC decision to deny recognition. The appeal must address why the leadership of the proposed student organization feels that the ICC incorrectly applied the criteria for approval. If the Dean determines that the ICC incorrectly denied recognition, the Dean may grant the appeal and extend University recognition to the organization, in which case the “Final Consideration” stage will have been satisfied. If the Dean determines that the ICC correctly applied the approval criteria, then the Dean will deny the appeal after consultation with senior University administrators. This denial is final.
