Step 1: Update your organization information in Engage Central

You can begin this process by logging into Engage Central at ess.cmich.edu/engage

  • If you have questions on navigating this process, try watching our step-by-step tutorial video. 
  • If you are not the admin of the portal or are having other issues with Engage Central , please complete a help request. 
  • If you're creating a new organization, you can access a sample constitution here.

Step 2: Ask your president, VP, treasurer and advisor to agree to their position terms and conditions. 

This will come as an email to each of them because you finished step 1. If they don't get the email, they can complete the form by accessing it in their engage portal. Share this video to help them access the forms.

Step 3: Complete Online Hazing Prevention Training

Your president, vice president and treasurer from each organization will be required to participate in an online hazing prevention training as part of the re-registration process. This must be done annually. You can view the steps to training here: Hazing Prevention Training Instructions 

Step 4: Complete Get Organized Student Organization Orientation online modules.

When you log onto the online hazing prevention training course platform, you will also notice that you have been assigned to watch “Get Organized” student organization orientation modules. Complete those modules, which will give you more information on Expectations of Student Organizations, Resources and Perks for Student Organizations, and Engage Central.

Step 5: Register for MainStage

Register your student organization to have a table at MainStage, which is a student organization fair at the beginning of the fall semester. You will be able to talk to new and returning students about your organization, and recruit them to join. You can find registration on the homepage of Engage Central.

Step 6: Request space for your organizations meeting

The online space request form will be available in August. You may submit space requests after August 1 and upon completion of Step 1, but your organization will not be able to utilize space until you have completed steps 2-4 of this process. A video tutorial of this process will be available soon.
