What do I need to do to start an SSDP Chapter?
- Receive official school recognition;
- Hold regular meetings;
- Attend national and regional SSDP events (such as conferences).
The chapter must contact SSDP’s international office to become an official SSDP chapter.
Chapters are also expected to embrace and exemplify the mission and values of the national organization.
Great, so how do I receive recognition from my school?
Many universities require student organizations to have faculty advisors, so a good first step is always to reach out to professors who you think may be supportive of drug policy reform. You should also draft up a chapter constitution, as many universities require one. You can download sample constitutions here.
