Guidelines for Campus Organizations
There are many student organizations at Georgetown College serving a variety of purposes and interests. Every student organization affiliated with or existing at Georgetown College must have on file in the Student Government Office a current copy of its Registered Student Organization Form, and must update this document every Fall.
All clubs and organizations involving Georgetown College students need College authorization and/or a College approved sponsor or advisor and must be registered through the Student Government. Such clubs and organizations must be recommended by an appropriate faculty/staff member or by a member of the Student Life staff. A club or organization seeking authorization must file an appropriate document identifying the purpose, policies and procedures, supervision, membership, activities, and authorization procedures as required by the College. The Dean of Students and SGA has the authority to accept or deny the registration of a new club.
A club/organization must maintain a minimum number of seven members to be a recognized club. A “Club & Organization Registration” form is available in the SGA Office. In order to be in good standing, a club/organization must fill out the “Club & Organization Annual Registration” form in the fall of every year. Registration may be denied or withdrawn at any time by the Dean of Students.
Organizational Financial Accounting
All organizations should meet financial obligations in a responsible manner. One irresponsible group can negatively affect the attitudes of merchants toward all campus groups. The residents can use these funds, but normal Business Office procedures must be followed. Damage to machines is paid for before profits are divided. The Offices of Student Life and Development must approve group solicitation efforts.
The Student Handbook is an official document of Georgetown College and contains the current nonacademic policies governing student life. The policies and regulations published in the Handbook supersede the constitutions, bylaws, or standing rules of any organizations. Students are expected to become familiar with the contents of this Handbook and conduct themselves accordingly.
In compliance with federal law, including provisions of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Georgetown College does not illegally discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, gender, gender identity, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, or disability in its administration of education policies, programs, or activities, or in its admissions policies. Inquires or concerns should be directed to the Provost’s Office at 8034.
Off-campus social functions by service, club, or social organizations are beyond the scope of control by the College. Neither the presence of an advisor or other employee of the College; the listing of the functions on the College calendar; nor any other College involvement with the club or organization or event shall be construed to cause an off-campus event to be a College event or one which the College, its agents, servants, or employees supervise or control.
No service, club, or social organization is permitted to present itself as an agent of the College. The College does not permit the use of its name in any way by service, club, or social organization in the purchase, rental, lease, borrowing, or any other supplies or services secured for the purpose of holding a social activity.
Georgetown College is not responsible for any indebtedness, account, or other financial arrangement made by any student, student organization, faculty member, or other employee, unless authorized by official purchase order signed by the President, Treasurer, or Controller, or in writing by the Trustees through the President. The Board of Trustees establishes these policies in order to maintain fair, consistent, and sound business relationships.
