New Organizations

If you are interested in creating a new organization you must complete the following.

  1. Look to make sure your organization doesn't already exist on Maize Pages. Currently UofM has 1,600 organizations and there may already be just the club you're thinking of.
  2. Think of an Organization Name and description.
  3. Read through the Basic Requirements to be an active club.
  4. Register for New Organization Orientation
    • This orientation will provide potential student leaders all of the steps to successfully navigate the student organization experience here at the University of Michigan.  Attending the orientation is required before you are able to submit a registration for a New Organization.

Existing Active Organizations

Complete the following steps to register your organization annually.
