Students, student organizations, faculty, staff, departments, and those individuals and groups not affiliated with the University seeking to distribute promotional materials or reserve space outside on the main campus of Michigan Technological University are required to complete this form. The form will be reviewed by Student Activities and Public Safety and Police Services. Please allow at least 48 hours for a response.
Occasionally registered student organizations sponsor events that are physical in nature and contain elements of risk. Student Activities recommends that organizations hosting such events utilize release forms for all participants. For any events containing risk that are hosted on-campus or at a University sponsored event/tradition, a risk management plan must be submitted to Student Activities in advance and must be approved before the event may occur.
Similar to the liability waiver, if your organization is sponsoring an event with elements of risk with large groups of people participating, or if you don't have any time with the participants in advance, the large group liability waiver might be useful. As a reminder, for all events on-campus or at University sponsored events, a risk management plan must be submitted to Student Activities in advance and must be approved before the event may occur.
Some students enter Michigan Tech before they are 18 years old. Many University sponsored events may contain elements of risk and require students to sign liability waivers, however students under the age of 18 cannot do this without a parent/guardian signature. By having a parent/guardian sign and return this form to Student Activities, the student will be permitted to participate in all University sponsored events, including those at the Outdoor Adventure Program, Housing and Residential Life, Student Activities, and more. (Student organization specific events are separate and may require additional parent/guardian consent.)
Any time a Greek organization pins a new member, the president of that organization must be sure to submit a completed new member registration form to Student Activities. An original copy of this form should be turned in to the Student Activities Office (MUB 112) during business hours. This is how we keep records of all new members. Don't forget to add the new member on your organization's Involvement Link page too!
Registered Student Organizations may reserve a rental vehicle from Husky Motors by going to www.mtu.edu/facilities/husky-motors/rentals/. Please note the new online vehicle reservation system and new key dispensing system. You will need to register for an account with Fleet Commander and wait for approval. You may then reserve your vehicle.
In order for the reservation to be confirmed, the organization must complete a Husky Motors Vehicle Request Form one to two weeks prior to travel. Student Activities will then verify that the vehicle rental is for an organization sponsored event, and then forward the signed form to Husky Motors.
Please make sure if you are renting a large van that all drivers are van certified and that you have two drivers per vehicle. Drivers must also be registered in Fleet Commander as well.
If you are a student traveling over 50 miles on behalf of a registered student organization of Michigan Tech, regardless of mode of transportation, each participating member must abide by the policies set in place and complete the Travel Policy Form at least 2 days prior to travel. Also make sure you attach an itinerary to the form.
If your organization is traveling more than 50 miles from campus, or if you are a student traveling more than 50 miles on behalf of a registered student organization, a Travel Policy Form must be completed at least 2 days prior to travel. Organizations that so not comply with the travel policy risk losing future funding for travel from the USG. Also make sure you attach an itinerary to the form.
Are you looking to advertise for your student organization? Check out the Posting Matrix and see where all the bulletin boards are as well as where you can drop your posters to be hung up.
The MUB Kiosk, located near the MUB Circle, is available to registered student organizations who wish to promote their events and/or organization. The dimensions of each posting space is 20 inches by 48 inches, so this is a great way to advertise for your organization! Contact Student Activities at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 906-487-1963.
At Michigan Tech, we're proud to have well over 236 registered student organizations! There is typically something for everyone, but if not, you can form your own student organization. All you need is ten members to start, and an advisor who is a faculty or staff member at Michigan Tech. Don't hesitate to stop into Student Activities if you have questions about the process.
Student organizations may submit events, fundraisers, and reminders to the Student News Brief, a weekly electronic publication that is sent out to all students. All submissions should be sent in by noon on Thursday to be published in the Friday edition. (Student News Briefs are sent out weekly during the fall and spring semester, and as needed during the summer months.) To submit a Student News Brief article, email email@example.com. You may attach a JPG (MAX size 2MB) if you have one.
Student organizations can request general student information such as by class, majors, GPA's, and other information. This form must be turned into Student Activities, located in room 112 of the Memorial Union Building (MUB).
