  • 21. 9.1.0 Nominations/ Selections 9.1.1.

CHAPTER-X Evaluation of Student Organization10.1.0 Tier System Student organisations will be placed in one of the four Tiers (1,2,3 &4; 1 being the lowest) and this will determine their privileges and entitlements. Tier 1 will have the least privileges in terms of usage of University resources like web space, venues etc. A student organisation may jump up the tier level after appraisal if it shows considerable achievement and hard work throughout the year. 10.1.1 A newly registered organisation is usually placed in the Tier1 and can avail the facilities accordingly. But on the recommendation of SOC any newly registered organisation or existing organisation can be placed directly in Tier 2 or Tier 3 after the Approval from the Head, Division of Student Affairs on recommendations of SOC. 10.1.2 The Tier slab, the table that determines the privileges of a certain tier is different for each category and is attached at (Annexure V). 21 | P a g e
  • 22. 10.1.3 Each student organisation has to fill in an Organisation Self Appraisal Form (O-SAF) at the end of every semester. The format for this form has been prescribed at (Annexure VI). The O-SAF has to be countersigned by the Facilitator prior to submission to SOC. If O- SAF is not submitted within 15 working days after the end of semester, the Organization will not be considered for evaluation and could be dissolved. 10.1.4 The Tier Evaluation committee (TEC) will evaluate the organisations on the basis of this appraisal. TEC consists of the Head, Division of Student Affairs (or Head, Division of Student Affairs office representative) and SOC staff. If TEC is of the opinion that a student organisation has worked hard and has generated results, it may choose to upgrade it to the next higher tier. Under exceptional cases, an organisation may be upgraded by two or even three tier levels. TEC reserves the right to dissolve the organisation in case of no results. 10.1.5 An Organization at Tier 2 and Tier 3 level can be reduced in grade to a lower level by TEC if the performance of the Organization is not found satisfactory on the decided parameters.

  • 26. _____________________________Pro-Chancellor(Annexure II) Constitution of Student OrganisationWhat follows is a sample constitution as prepared by the Division of Student Affairs (DSA). A legend for reading theConstitution appears below:Anything written in italics: Anything written in italics represents a comment by the SOC on the immediatelypreceding text. There will be areas in the sample constitution we feel a desire to explain our reason for setting acertain minimum standard, and those explanations will appear in italics immediately following the section inquestion.Anything written in plain text: Anything written in plain text (i.e. not italics, bold, or underlined) represents thoseitems which must be included as part of the constitution of any Student Organization.Anything written in bold text: Anything written in bold represents the header for the following subsection. Forexample, the article numbers all appear in bold to denote that they are the headers for the sections that follow them.(Anything written in parentheses): Anything in parentheses represents a place where we are unable to supplystandard information in plain text, as what is required is something customized for your Student Organization alone.For example, if the phrase (insert Student Organization name here) appears, what is required is your exact StudentOrganization name in place of the text in parentheses.Your Student Organization constitution must adhere to all requirements stipulated within the Student Organizationsmanual. Once completed, your proposed constitution must be approved by the SOC. 26 | P a g e
  • 27. CONSTITUTION OF (INSERT YOUR STUDENT ORGANIZATION NAME HERE)Article 1 – Name and CategoryThe Student Organization’s official name will be “(Insert your Student Organization name here).” No other namewill be used in the advertisement or representation of the Student Organization.The category of this organisation is ““(Insert your Student Organization category here).”This article is self-explanatory. You must define the exact name of your Student Organization that will be used in allofficial capacities. A new Organization will be by default kept in Tier1 but SOC if desires so can keep a newOrganization in higher tiers.Article 2 – Student Organization Mandate(1) List all purposes for which this Student Organization will serve..Outline and describe the planned purpose of your Student Organization. It is important that you not define yourStudent Organization too narrowly or too broadly. By this we mean that you should not simply say that: “We want toget students together to have a good time.” While this is no doubt a laudable goal, it is much too broad a mandatefor us to ratify. Your Student Organization needs a more specific reason for existing, but try not to define yourStudent Organization with such a focused precision that you leave no room for growth and different ideas to emerge.What we recommend is that you give a good, but more general outline of your Student Organization’s purpose.When it comes to your Student Organization’s purpose and mandate, we will hold you to, and sometimes constrainyou to, what is written in your constitution, but we will not hold you to the contents of your cover letter.Article 3 – Membership• Membership will be open to everyone; if not read below If membership is not open to everyone then the Organization must be having some criteria and selection procedure for the selection of members. If such is the case then specify the closed status of membership and the criteria along with the selection procedure in the above clause. The criteria could be based on CGPA, Knowledge, skills, achievements etc. and selection procedure could include shortlisting based on CV, Trials, written tests, Interviews etc. It is recommended that the procedure should be such that it does not scare away prospective members.• Only students at the LPU are eligible to hold membership and Organization board positions;• The membership option will be kept open twice a year and each time for 30 days starting from the day of commencement of academic term. Above given is a mandate imposed by University so keep it as it is.• The number of members will not be less than 10 and more than 250. Above given is the rule imposed by University. You can restrict your membership strength anywhere between the given bracket.• Any member can leave the Organization any time after informing in written to Organization board members. Organization can frame a different leaving policy if they desires so. Organization are expected to intimate SOC about leaving of any member immediately.Firstly, Student Organization membership will be by default open to everyone. If Student Organizations seek to limittheir membership according to some criteria then they will have to mention it explicitly along with the selectionprocedure. Secondly, this is a University and not the community at large, and as such we require StudentOrganizations to restrict Organization board and membership privileges to current LPU students only. Thirdly, aStudent Organization is permitted to take an affiliation from an Organization outside the University only after theapproval from SOC. 27 | P a g e

For further help on category specific designations, students can gothrough Student Organization manual. It is highly recommended that you frame the positions and responsibilities ofyour Organization board members as per the requirements of the Organization. However, do not include extrapositions just for the sake of doing so. Determine what positions you can consolidate and merge.
