Student Engagement and Campus Life Student Organizations


Student Engagement and Campus Life at Texas A&M University-Kingsville is committed to the social and academic growth of our students. We strive to provide a variety of programs that are cultural, educational, and entertaining for the TAMUK campus. We also help coordinate the activities and functions of more than 100 registered student organizations. We have departmental clubs, special interest clubs, honorary societies, religious groups, Greek organizations and sports clubs.

Organization Categories

We currently have two categories of organization to better identify the needs and resources for each of our TAMUK student organizations.

Sponsored Organizations  Registered Organizations
Sponsored organizations are those considered to be critical to the mission and culture of the University. These organizations are inherently linked to the University because of their role in representing the University or presenting events considered to be an integral part of the University. The activities and events of these organizations are considered to involve a higher level of complexity because of their scope and perceived association with the University. (Ex: Student Government Association, Campus Activities Board, Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, etc.)

Registered organizations are all those that do not meet the sponsored organization requirements.
Registered organizations play an essential role in hosting events and providing an opportunity for members to engage in the mission and purposes of the organization actively.

Registered organizations must have a minimum of 10 members, can fundraise, host campus events, are open to any enrolled TAMUK students (unless not meeting the organization's minimum requirements), and must adhere to all university policies.
