Highlands encourages students to look beyond the classroom by exploring our chartered clubs and organizations. The Center for Professional Development and Career Readiness oversees campus clubs and organizations that are established by students. Each club represents a unique interest on campus, so it is almost guaranteed that all Highlands students will find a place for them. If not, start your own!

All chartered campus clubs and organizations must re-apply with the Center for Professional Development & Career Readiness no later than September 15th.

New campus clubs and organizations may apply for charter any time during the fall semester.
