The sections outlined below are the required sections for student organization constitutions.
- Name: The name the student organization cannot include the University, abbreviation or logo, but can be the name of the organization at SF State (for example, Math Club at SF State). The name should reflect the purpose of the organization and clearly differentiate the club as a student organization and not a University department or program. The choice of language within the name should remain reflective of the University's mission.
- Purpose: Why does the organization exist? What does the organization wish to accomplish?
- Membership: Who is considered a member and what are their rights?
- Please note that the constitution must clearly state that only currently registered SF State students may be voting members. Faculty and staff (including the advisor) can participate, but not have voting privileges or any decision making power.
- The membership section must be in compliance with the CSU's non-discrimination and open membership policies. Click here for the non-discrimination and open membership policy.
