How to Become a Member

All students at the Grand Rapids campus of WMU Cooley are welcome to join our student organization.

Please refer to the following section from our bylaws before considering membership:

"ACLU student chapters and local units are legal entities of the ACLU of Michigan. Therefore, chapter and unit activities must be consistent with the mission and work of the ACLU. Student chapters should make every reasonable effort to maintain consistent contact with their respective local unit members and the state Field Director. Collaboration with local units and the state staff provides a wealth of resources and supports beneficial to the success of student chapters. Student chapters may not take contrary positions on issues for which the national ACLU or ACLU of Michigan has a policy position."

To become a member of ACLU Cooley's Grand Rapids campus, please attend our meetings which are held every other Friday at 12:00PM in room 524. Please refer to the calendar on Portal to see which day the meetings will be held.
