Starting a Club

Student Club and Organization Policy

Bryn Mawr College is committed to supporting a variety of student clubs and organizations which are consistent with the educational philosophy and mission of the College.

Social fraternities or sororities are not permitted at the College. The College has determined that students are better served by the numerous non-exclusive student clubs and organizations which exist on campus. Bryn Mawr College does not recognize the charter of any social fraternity or sorority. No College facilities (including all public and private spaces, bulletin boards, and campus mail) can be used for any social fraternity or sorority activities.

Violation of this policy by any student constitutes a violation of the social honor code and may result in disciplinary sanctions.

Steps for starting a new club

1. Explore the clubs already in existence at Bryn Mawr College before starting a club. If a student finds that we do not have a club which is of interest to them they can choose to start their own club. However, the club must be different than any club already on campus.

2. Gain interest and members from the student body by hosting an event. A minimum of five member is required for any new club.

3. Once you have five members you can petition the Office of Student Activities to start a new club. Petitions are accepted in September and January and the petition form will be available on the Student Activities website during the first two weeks of each semester.

4.If funding is desired, the new club must submit a written consistitution to SGA's Student Finance Committee in the beginning of the semester. Please review the Constitution Guide for a template. Consitution Guide (pdf) (doc)

5. All clubs are required to register each academic year with the Office of Student Activities at the beginning of the fall semester.

*Bi-Co Students for Justice in Palestine

SJP Points of Unity:
1. Ending Israel’s occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall;
2. Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
3. Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
Bi-Co SJP Mission:
Our vision is an end to the occupation of Palestine and of Palestinians. This vision includes the protection of human rights and freedoms, land access and the right of return for Palestinians in diaspora, and the preservation (vs. erasure) of indigenous cultures and histories.
We know that there is no true peace without justice. Our resistance is based in open dialogue and truth as well as education, culture, and pride.
In recognition of the USA’s involvement and culpability in this conflict, we aim to harness our power as students at an American college to inform others about the region’s history and current events, to respect Palestinian narratives, and to inspire and lead real change in our local, national, and global communities.
Our group is anti-Zionist and anti-apartheid and stands in solidarity with other anti-occupation, anti-racism, anti-colonial, demilitarization, and human rights movements around the world. Our group has no religious affiliation and we warmly welcome support and involvement from any and all community members opposed to the occupation of Palestine.
That said, we reject attempts to “normalize” Palestine-Israel relations –– that is to say, approaches that ignore the systemic violence towards and disenfranchisement of Palestine and Palestinians and that try to superficially equalize the dialogue between oppressor and oppressed.

*Haverford Mock Trial

Founded in 2014, the Haverford College Mock Trial team seeks to foster abilities in public speaking, critical thinking, and teamwork in order to provide students the opportunity to develop and use those skills.
Mock Trial appeals to a diverse range of individuals with a broad range of interests, which are especially present in the College’s academically rigorous environment. Students interested in law, public speaking, performing, debating, acting, arguing, reading, writing, forensic science, and a host of other disciplines will find “Mocking” to be both an intellectually stimulating and fun experience.
We receive the annual American Mock Trial Association national case packet and works together to build original arguments for both the prosecution/plaintiff (depending if the case is civil or criminal) and defense sides. Our members extensively train and prepare to play the roles of attorneys, witnesses, and expert witnesses at trial. There are over 600 collegiate teams in the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA) to compete against, ranging from small liberal arts colleges to large public and private universities. Our team competes in the AMTA's annual tournament that starts at the regional level and progresses all the way to the national championship. In addition, we are eligible to enter nationwide invitational tournaments that occur before Regional trial season. Teams in the AMTA competition advance to the various stages based on their wins and performance against other teams at trial.
Our team plays a vital role on campus as Haverford’s only competitive debate organization. Our members come from a number of diverse backgrounds, ranging from Model UN to Lincoln-Douglas Forum Debate. This is largely why our initial recruitment drive was so successful, given the lack of other debate-related opportunities for interested students. We also continue to accumulate high school Mock Trial veterans, many of whom are eager to continue with their passions.
We are in the process of developing a closer relationship with the Haverford Pre-Law Society and Haverford College Lawyer’s Network (HCLN) in order to provide students further opportunities to connect with alumni in the legal field. This dynamic will be especially useful in allowing prelaw students to develop legal skills while simultaneously receiving mentorship from local alumni. The HCLN has already provided us with a number of Haverford lawyers to serve as coaches, including current head coach Jeff Monhait ’09.

*Sneech Ultimate Frisbee

The bi-co women's Ultimate Frisbee team practices five days a week, from September till early November and then from late January till May. Our team continues to grow in numbers and school support; all students, staff and friends are welcome to attend our Haverford-based tournaments. We participate in eight to ten tournaments a year and co-host two of our own (Haverween and Layout Pigout) with the men’s team, Big Donkey Ultimate.
We cut no one; anyone who wants to play may join us and participate. We are entirely run by students who are responsible for organizing practices, budgeting moneyz, planning tournaments, and coordinating other logistical aspects. We are known for our great spirit, witty cheers, and flair.
