Student organization resources

The Dean of Students Office student organization resources area supports the development, advising and operations of university recognized student organizations.

The Student Organization Resources area's mission is:

  • To support student organizations as a means for enriching the campus life experience for organization members and the greater campus community;
  • Develop student organizations so they may provide quality programs, services, and leadership opportunities that enhance student classroom learning and compliment the Wayne State experience; and;
  • To support student intellectual growth and social maturity through promoting ethical and moral development, appreciating diversity, encouraging civic engagement, providing leadership development, and supporting the establishment of meaningful interpersonal relationships. 

List of Registered Student Organizations

  • Student Organization registration

    With over 500 organizations covering 50 different categories it is rare to not find something that peaks a student's interest. However, you can start your own Registered Student Organizations (RSO) using Get Involved. RSOs only require at least two currently registered WSU students to be recognized.

    Register your student organization

    All student organizations are required to re-register their organization every academic year. Re-registration will begin August 5, 2019 for the 2019-20 academic year.

    1. Log in to Get Involved
    2. Click "Organizations"
    3. Click "Register an Organization"
    4. To re-register: Select "Manage" from the waffle menu in the upper right of your screen. Select the organization you would like to re-register. On the following page you will see a blue box that says "Re-register This Organization", then complete the form. Please review how to change your roster if you had a change in presidents before re-registering your organization.
      To register a new organization: Click the organizations tab. On the left-hand side click "Register and Organization" then click "Register a New Organization". Please make sure to select "Student Organizations"
    5. Follow all prompts and carefully read instructions before submitting
    6. All requests are reviewed by the Dean of Students Office within 3-5 business days
