Student Organizations

Student Involvement, Leadership, and Transitions (SILT) offers a variety of meaningful engagement and leadership opportunities for students from all backgrounds and categories, including first-year through senior year, international, graduate, and professional.

We help students explore opportunities to serve with student-run organizations, connect with student government entities, develop leadership capabilities, identify resources, and assist in planning or attending late-night programs.

Student organizations are recognized by the Student Government Association and the Graduate Student Government Association.

With over 400+ to choose from, getting involved in a student organization is easy!

We use an online student organization management system called OrgSync to maintain all of the information and records for all of our student organizations. We encourage you to bookmark this page so you can easily get to the OrgSync login screen or bookmark

Start Student Orgs

In order to promote and increase transparency, speed, and clarity within the chartering process, the Student Government Association and Graduate Student Government Association has adopted chartering bylaws that make starting a club, organization, or student group easier than ever. We believe that nothing should stand in the way of a passionate group of individuals who want to form an organization at Emory. Student groups are at the heart of the Emory experience.

There are minimum requirements for chartering a new student organization as dictated by the Student Government Association and Graduate Student Government Association:

  • A constitution with a statement of the purpose of the organization and an anti-discrimination clause;
  • The names and academic divisions of ten (10) members;
  • A president, treasurer, and one other officer;
  • A faculty advisor;
  • Approval from your Divisional Council.
  • At the discretion of each division, divisional leadership can include additional requirements necessary for chartering or gaining access to student activity fee funding.

All chartering starts with OrgSync. All of the previously listed information is needed to register your group. The respective division will follow up with you directly after your application for chartering has been received. Each division can set additional requirements beyond the minimum set by SGA and GSGA.
