Starting a Club or Organization


The expansive list of student clubs at Reed reflects the vast diversity of Reedie’s interests and passions. If you don’t see a group that speaks to your interests, feel free to start your own. 

Here are initial steps to take to launch your new student club or organization.

  1. Register your club with the Office for Student Engagement and get listed on the student club webpage by filling out this form.
  2. Register your club with the student body Treasury. Look for instructions in the biweekly SB (Student Body) Info email sent by the student body President.
  3. Attend the signator training held by the student body Treasury at the beginning of each semester. Students must attend this training if you would like to apply for funding. Training times and details are typically advertised through the SB Info email. If you missed the training, contact the student body treasurers at
  4. Assess the risk level of your club and take the appropriate follow up steps with the Office for Student Engagement, Risk Management, and/or Athletics, Fitness, and Outdoor Programs.
  5. Meet with staff in the Office for Student Engagement to seek advice, learn about resources, discuss your plans for creating a successful group, and plan events and more.
