Constitution & Bylaws

Organizations wishing to register with the university must submit a constitution and bylaws that provides the organization with guidelines for operations and activities. These two separate documents should be well written and kept up-to-date to meet the needs of the student organization. A current constitution & bylaws should always be stored on the Documents tab on AUinvolve.

The constitution:
·Establishes the broad structure and fundamental principles that govern the organization
·It should be straightforward
·It should be difficult to amend

The bylaws:
·Outline the rules of procedure for an organization
·Should be consistent with the constitution
·Are often easier to amend than the constitution

Attached is a sample Constitution & Bylaws for your reference.
