Why should students become a part of your organization? Share goals and the mission of your group. Ask current members why they joined and share their experiences with others. Be specific about your programs; you worked hard!
Publicize! Word of mouth is extremely effective. Email, announcements, fliers, and the involvement fair are just some of the ways you can recruit students to belong to your organization.
Make a list of all the benefits and opportunities that new members will receive for their involvement. Give students a desire for accomplishment and make sure you let others know why the club is important.
Recruitment is an ongoing process. This is not only something you do in the beginning of the semester, it’s something that you can do all year long. Get involved in opportunities that educate people about your organization. Be available at all events, not just your own, to answer questions and recruit!
Motivation: Motivation is contagious! Motivating your members is a great way to make them feel a part of the team. Recognition, job satisfaction, and food are just a few simple incentives for motivation.
Recognition: This on-going activity is for members to express their appreciation for each other's contributions. Feedback, attention, and acknowledgement are a few key factors in creating a successful club.
Delegation: This responsibility is for current leaders to communicate and help others in their group feel important and recognized.
Academic Standing for Students in a ClubThe overall grade point averages (GPA) of all officers/members must be 2.0 or above (unless a higher minimum is specified in the organization’s constitution). The club advisor and the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership monitor grades.
All club members must be enrolled as undergraduate students with Cabrini College and be in good academic and disciplinary standing.
A student on academic probation (overall GPA below 2.0) is ineligible to participate in co-curricular activities as an officer, director, or member of any club activity.
The club advisor and Center for Student Engagement and Leadership will inform students of their ineligibility. Ineligible students, when informed, may not be active in the group until they are in good academic standing and are removed from the probation list.
Students can appeal the Director of the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership for extenuating reasons.
