Starting a new club/Renewing your club
Starting a new club is a start of a new chapter here at Lassonde. There are often clubs that share a similar path that are already well structured and developed and can instead work together to establish a stronger presence in the community.
Before you start a new club, please consider the following questions:
- Is there an existing club that has similar interests?
- What are the clubs goals and objectives? What is the purpose of the club?
- How many students will you be able to recruit? What steps are you planning to take to ensure a long term existence of the club?
- Who else are interested in the club? Do you have a retention plan? For a club to be successful, you must have others who are interested in the club’s vision for a greater impact in the community. You will need 20 Lassonde students to sign up for your club’s purpose.
- Who is your club Advisor? A club’s advisor is a faculty or staff that believes in your vision and supports you with their expertise. You will need to identify and request the help of the advisor ahead of time to help with the planning of the club’s objectives and goals.
- Have you talked to the Student Engagement Team? You will need the approval of the office of Assistant Dean of Students to ratify your club with Lassonde. It is essential to keep the Student Life Coordinator updated with big changes within the club.
- Have you created your club constitution? Sample constitutions are available on the YFS and YUConnect sites.
