How to Get Started

SIUE is home to 250-plus student organizations that serve a wide variety of interests. Students can choose from academic honor societies, fraternities and sororities, professional, recreational, cultural, religious, and special interest groups. If you cannot find what you are looking for, consider starting a new organization!

Recognized status for your new group will allow you to take advantage of all the resources and privileges offered by Student Government and the Kimmel Student Involvement Center.

Recognized student organizations have the right to:

  • Request the use of University facilities and services
  • Recruit members on campus under the organization’s name
  • Solicit on campus under the organization’s name
  • Promote the organization and activities on campus
  • Request student activity fee funding from Student Government
  • Receive publications and be included in mailings from the Kimmel Leadership Center
  • Request support and assistance from the Kimmel Leadership Center staff and all other services and activities developed for the benefit of recognized organizations

Contact the Kimmel Student Involvement Center for help in creating your organization, developing your constitution and seeking recognition.
