Student Engagement

The Office of Student Engagement offers assistance to all students who are interested in planning events for the campus, clubs, or Greek organizations. The staff can provide information on how to start a new club, how to apply for funds through the Activities Fund Allocation Committee (AFAC), and how to advertise your event.

Rules and Regulations

  1. A student organization must have its constitution and by-laws approved by the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Student Engagement staff. Any subsequent amendments to the constitution or changes in the by-laws must be approved by the same entities. The proceedings of all student organizations must be open at all times for faculty inspection. A student organization must have an adviser approved by the Student Engagement Office. The faculty may dissolve an organization of students, which it deems detrimental to the interests of the College.
  2. Locations and times of all regular meetings and formal on-campus activities of student organizations must be approved by the Student Engagement staff. To avoid conflicts, all campus spaces must be reserved through the Event Management System managed by the Office of Protocol and Special Events. Please consult the Student Engagement Office when reserving all facilities. Groups or individuals not associated with Ursinus College must obtain permission from the Office of Protocol and Special Events to use college grounds, buildings, and/or other property.
  3. Participation in any extracurricular activities may be restricted at the discretion of the Dean of the College or as a disciplinary penalty.
  4. The responsibility for student behavior at any student activity, on or off campus, belongs to the individual student’s participation in that activity. Students and their guests participate in these activities at their own risk. While college employees may participate in various aspects of some student activities, the College and its employees do not stand in loco parentis in any sense. The College will take appropriate action against students, their guests, or trespassers who violate college regulations or disobey directions from proper college authorities.
