Starting a New Student Organization

Interested in starting a new student organization at Teachers College? Below are a few of the requirements for new student organizations:

  • A minimum of three signatory members who are TC students
  • A minimum of ten general members who are TC students
    A faculty advisor
  • At least 3-4 events per semester
  • A mission statement and programming plan 

Groups that will not be considered for registration include:

  • Event-specific (i.e. one-time events); groups must show sustainability by way of ongoing efforts held throughout the academic year
  • Political groups for a particular party or single-issue item or agenda
  • Student groups that have other or outside primary sources of recognition and outside sources of administrative and/or funding support, including those registered with main campus and/or CU affiliate schools.
  • Groups with a main mission of student recruitment and other admissions related goals
  • Groups that are directly linked to an academic class and are therefore not easily accessible to all TC students

The application to start a new student organization in Spring 2022 will open shortly. Questions? Contact
