Registered Student Organizations
As of Spring 2016, Michigan Technological University has 236 Registered Student Organizations. Involvement Link is the official program used to manage all registered student organizations at Michigan Tech.
With Involvement Link, organizations can:
- Manage their own profile
- Update membership rosters and officers
- Advertise meetings and events
- Create online forms
- Send messages to their membership lists
- Store documents and photos
- Track service hours and print service reports
Parents, staff, faculty, and prospective students can visit Involvement Link and see the entire list of Registered Student Organizations. Current students must initially log onto Involvement Link using their ISO password to create their own account. Students may “join” any open organization, or wait to be invited by one of the officers.
Student Activities uses Involvement Link data for official University business to verify members involvement on University documents, or to send important messages to officers and advisors. Involvement Link is used to extract contact information that is often requested by campus departments, community businesses, corporate visitors for the career fairs, and prospective students.
For these reasons, it is important for registered student organizations to update their Involvement Link page frequently. Officers and membership lists should always be current. A copy of each organization's most recent constitution should be uploaded to the "Documents" banner. Organizations are also required to upload an inventory list, if applicable.
If you are listed on Involvement Link as an officer within your organization, you have administrative privileges to your page by default. When officers leave their positions, it is important that the organization promptly updates Involvement Link so that new officers have access to it. Officers should add and delete members immediately as changes occur.
Questions about Involvement Link can be directed to Maryann Wilcox, Coordinator for Registered Student Organizations, in Student Activities - MUB 112, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at (906) 487-2402.

Groups/Organizations that are NOT REGISTERED with Michigan Technological University
While the students and/or community members within the groups listed below (and others not previously registered) may attempt to recruit individuals into these groups, it is important to note that they are NOT registered student organizations and are NOT affiliated with Michigan Technological University in any way. The University advises that students and their parents review carefully the potential benefits and the potential disadvantages or risks of affiliating with such non-registered student organizations.
The University Code of Conduct applies to student behavior both on and off campus. Students involved in conduct violations may subject themselves to individual University disciplinary procedures, including suspension or dismissal if they are found responsible for violations.
