Policy Number: 6.900 

Subject: Student Clubs and Organizations

Date Adopted: January 1, 1991, Revised November, 2000

Student clubs and organizations are encouraged by the Board of Trustees, when duly organized, approved and operating within the guidelines of College policy. Procedures for establishment are available from the Vice President for Student Services. Faculty and administration support of duly recognized student organizations is expected, since such are an important part of a student's college experience.

Student Government Association

The Board of Trustees recognizes that an important part of college life is that of student activities, events, and organizations. The Vice President for Student Services, under the direction of the President and the Board of Trustees, is charged with the fostering of student organizations and a duly approved Student Government Association. A constitution, approved by the Board of Trustees, will be kept on file in the Student Services Office.

The Student Government Association is charged with operating within the policies and procedures as set forth by the Board of Trustees.

Limited Charters for Student Organizations

The Board of Trustees recognizes that the College is responsible to the citizens of the College District and, as such, must always operate in a non-partisan political manner and without discriminational activities toward any individual or group. Recognizing this, the College will grant only limited charters for religious and/or political student organizations. Such organizations will be chartered by the same procedure as other student organizations, with the following exceptions:

  1. These clubs and organizations must observe all College regulations and policies imposed by the county, state and federal governments.
  2. They cannot have a representative on the Student Activities Council.
  3. They will not be eligible to use College, state, or federal funds.
  4. The charter will be issued for a one-year period. It would be reviewed each year before being renewed.
  5. The charter must be approved by the Student Activities Council in addition to the Vice President for Student Services and the President of the College.
  6. All other rules applying to regular chartered groups would apply.
