Students and faculty members who are interested requesting the establishment of a new student organization at Walden University should review the steps in the process outlined below. If, after reviewing the information, there are additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested students and faculty should review the Walden University Student Organization guidelines below to determine if their group interest meets the guidelines for formal student organizations.
*Students who do not want to set up a formal, Walden-recognized student organization, may
request an informal group in Our Community to connect with fellow students and faculty with similar interests.
Request approval through the Walden University approval process:
*Please note: Walden’s approval of student organizations affiliated with a National / International Office, are contingent upon receiving subsequent approval from that National / International Office (see Step 3).
Once the Establishment of a Student Organization has been approved by Walden University:
Honor Societies, Professional Organizations, Special Interest (with National/International Organization affiliation):
Special Interest-Walden University based Student Organization (no national/international office affiliation):
All Walden-approved student organizations must submit an annual report form, member roster, and constitution and/or bylaws (if updated during the past year). Requests for updates will be sent to the primary faculty advisor on file with the Office of Student Affairs annually (around January).
If there are changes throughout the year to the primary faculty or student officer contacts, please update the Office of Academic Affairs by contacting us at email@example.com.
