  • Constitution and By-Laws: Each potential organization is required to submit a constitution in order to gain official status as a WSU student organization.  A constitution is the governing document for operation of the registered student organization.  It should contain the objectives of the organization, a membership clause, a description of the officers’ responsibilities and duties of elected offices, and any standing committees.  Organization may decide to include the by-laws of the organization, which are rules that govern the election of officers and other procedures.  By-laws should also include plans to replace officers for not fulfilling their duties or stepping down from their position.  By-laws can increase the requirements of membership, as deemed necessary.  The constitution can dictate member fees as a way to track membership and increase funding to the group.  All constitution by-laws and changes must be approved by at least 75% of the organizations’ active members to take effect.
