How to Start an Organization

Students are highly encouraged to check out the list of active organizations on the Panther Involvement Network (PIN). The process for starting a new organization differs for the Atlanta and Perimeter campuses.

Steps to register a student organization:

  • Do research
    • Search to make sure a similar group doesn’t already exist on PIN
    • If a similar group is found, reach out to that organization to learn more information
  • Consider whether this group needs to be a Chartered Student Organization
    • For example, if a study group is looking to reserve a study room work with the academic department to get space to study.
  • *Recruit at least five (5) Georgia State students that would like to be a part of this organization
  • *Recruit a faculty/staff member on the specific campus the organization will be chartered on. This member will serve as the on-campus advisor (must be at least part-time)
  • Submit the application
