Are you looking to create a Georgetown student organization? Wanting to be added to Campus Groups? Find more information of how to do this on our Group Formation page.
Step 1: Fill (new window)out the GradGov Prospective Group Declaration of Interest form. The Director of Groups will review the information to ensure the group complies with the above regulations (no need to have all 13 members at this point)
Step 2: The interested group will meet with the Director of Groups and Assistant Director of Graduate Enrichment and Communication to review new graduate student group’s proposal.
Step 3: New graduate student group develops a constitution, including mission statement and list of executive board positions. The constitution must set standards, objectives, goals, etc. for your group. Once completed, the constitution will be submitted to the Director of Groups for review.
Step 4: At the last General Assembly (GA) meeting of the semester (late-November/early-December), your group will submit your constitution and present your proposal to the Assembly.
Step 5: The General Assembly will vote to approve or deny your group establishment. If approved, your group may begin accessing funds starting in the Spring. Please refer to the Access to Benefits (new window) page for more details on requirements and resources granted. More general information on student groups can be found on the Student Organizations (new window) page. Under Hoyalink you may also access other groups’ documentation such as their constitution. This will familiarize you with a general outline of your group’s own constitution. The Center for Student Engagement (CSE) is the broad umbrella organization under which GradGov and GradGov groups fall. It might be worth exploring some of the resources they have on their website as well.
Please If you would like to chat further about this process and the benefits you would gain by becoming a GradGov group, please do not hesitate to contact Jie Jung Shih, the Director of Groups.
