This person must be a full-time or part-time staff member or full-time faculty ONLY; no adjunct faculty. Please have their full name, email address, phone number and physical location on campus.

Step #2 - You will need to complete a constitution; include by-laws if necessary. Sample Constitution

Step #3 – Select officers for your organization. You must have 7 members to start your organization. Each officer must be in good academic and conduct standing with the University. Your organization must have a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer listed. You will also be required to have 2 additional members who will serve as your Student Representatives (Senators) for the Student Senate and for the Registered Organization Council (ROC) meetings (1 for student Senate and 1 for ROC meetings).

Step #4 – Complete the registration form in RAMSync. Click from the main WSSU page on Current Student. On the drop down click My WSSU (www.mywssu.wssu.edu) Login with your RAM ID and password, scroll down on the right and click RAMSync click Browse Organizations, Click Register New Organization, Click Student Activities/Admin Group.
