Manage Your Organization

The term “organization” in Anchor Link refers to a group or site within the system. Organizations include all registered student organizations, residential areas, Commons Houses, living learning communities, Dean of Students offices and programs, and a variety of other university departments, programs, and resources.

All student organizations must complete the annual registration process through Anchor Link in order to become official registered student organizations (RSOs). During the registration process, organizations must update their organization’s contact information, officers, and membership roster. Organizations must upload a copy of their constitution and bylaws as well as a signed Officer and Adviser Affirmation form.

Any university departments or programs that would like to have an organization created should email anchorlink@vanderbilt.edu to request a group. Creating a group in Anchor Link will allow departments to advertise events, track attendance, publicize programs, and communicate with students.
