Business Student Organizations Policies & Procedures

The policies and procedures below govern Chaifetz School of Business student clubs and are meant to provide additional guidance and resources to student leaders.

Alcohol Policy

  • No alcohol can be served at any Chaifetz School student club event. If your club’s name is attached to an event, your club is responsible for enforcing this rule.

CSO Student Handbook and Resources

  • All student organizations, including business clubs, are expected to follow the rules outlined in the CSO Handbook. A copy of the handbook can be found here.
  • Deviation from these rules can result in a hearing through the Office of Student Responsibility and Community Standards and possible club deactivation.
  • Please use these resources to assist in planning and facilitating programs/events for your student organizations.

Business School Announcements

  • Announcements can be sent to all Chaifetz School students every other Monday through a weekly newsletter starting September 16, 2019. If you would like your information to be sent to all Chaifetz School students, please add the promotion information to the document in this folder by Wednesday of the previous week. If you have any questions about the newsletter, email Olivia Tran at
  • If you would like to promote your event on the Business School calendar, please submit a calendar event with a Message for Administrator to add the event to the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business calendar.
  • Announcements can also be posted on the television screen in the Chaifetz School Atrium and electronic directories. Please email a PDF or JPEG announcement to Mike Bauer at one week in advance. Slides are on the screen for 15 seconds, so please be concise.
    • We require the size to be 16:9 (example 16 inches wide by 9 inches high). If you are creating in PowerPoint, you can easily format to this size by going to DESIGN > SLIDE SIZE (top right corner) > WIDESCREEN 16:9. Please save and send the file as a PDF (pwt or word doc not accepted). We are no longer accepting traditional flyer sizes. Please limit slides to one per event.
    • We request that SLU branding be followed when creating TV slides if your student organization doesn't have specific branding. Visit SLU MarCom for detailed information on SLU fonts, colors and logo best practices.
