The Office for Student Engagement houses student organizations, student organization training, new student orientation and general campus programming. We are the catalyst for students to gather and make new relationships. If you would like to get involved in a student organization, contact Student Engagement Coordinator Carlos Pinkerton at email@example.com.
How to establish a student organization
Attend a New Student Organization (NSO) Informational. Not all members of the group must attend, but anyone interested in a leadership position within should plan to be there. Vital information on how to complete the process will be shared at the meeting.
Submit a completed new student organization application to the Office of Student Engagement. Additional items or a meeting to discuss the organization and its mission, purpose and activities may be requested by staff members.
The completed application will be reviewed and the organization will be assigned a classification and categorization. Additional expectations may be assigned dependent on the proposed activities.
Upon approval, the student organization will receive an account number and additional information on completed the recognition process.

Student Organization Categories
There are three different types of student organizations, determined by an organization’s relationship to the university:
Considered to be critical to the mission and culture of the RELLIS Campus, sponsored organizations typically have a close relationships with a campus department or office. These types of student groups are required to have a full-time professional staff member sponsor whose job description designates them as the primary advisor to the sponsored organization.
Affiliated Organizations contribute to the mission and culture of the RELLIS Campus and often have a direct link to a larger, sponsored organization on campus. Affiliated advisors must be a full-time Texas A&M University System employee.
These organizations are capable of functioning with minimal support from the RELLIS Campus academic staff, but remain aligned with the mission and culture of the campus. Advisors may be a faculty member, professional or associate staff member, or a graduate student.
