Clubs & Organizations

Kennebec Valley Community College offers a variety of different academic and general interest clubs for students to encourage student involvement. Students can find existing clubs filled with other students that have a shared interest or hobby. You can see a list, including description and contact information, for existing by using the KV App and going to the Clubs and Groups tile.

If you do not see a club that you wish the college had then why not start one yourself? New club requests are reviewed by the Office of Student Life and Student Senate. Club requests are reviewed bi-weekly so allow for up to 10 business days for a response. To request the creation of a new club, complete the request/renewal form here or in the KVCC App.

Existing clubs need to renew their membership with the college every academic year. To renew your clubs membership complete the club request/renewal form . Please also complete this form if you have a change in leadership for your club.

Other questions about Student Clubs and Groups may be answered in the Club and Organization Handbook.

Student Senate

Student Senate provides a forum for students who want to voice their opinions, questions, or concerns about aspects of student life at Kennebec Valley Community College. Student Senate has officer positions including President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. These officers work with the student body and other senate members to promote student-centered activities, clubs and organizations. Senate holds regular officer and general student body meetings throughout the course of the semester. Student Senate also brings student concerns and questions about policies, procedures and services at KVCC to the executive team of the College.

If you are interested in getting involved with Student Senate and making a difference for students, the easiest way is to log into the KV App and go to the Clubs and Groups tile. Once there, select the KVCC Student Senate group and click “Become Member”, it’s that easy!

If you do not have the App, you can send an email to the Director of Student Life, Jannie Durr at JDurr@kvcc.me.edu, and let us know you are ready to be a part of the team!

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges.  Its purpose is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.  Membership is based on superior academic achievement and is conferred only by invitation of your local chapter.

The reasons for joining Phi Theta Kappa are many.  Our Chapter is very active both on campus and in the greater KVCC community.  Each year, through service projects and the Honors in Action program, members have the opportunity to engage in the Four Hallmarks of Phi Theta Kappa; Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship.   Additionally, members have access to scholarships and transfer services that are not available to non-members.  At graduation, many members choose to celebrate their academic achievements by wearing the Phi Theta Kappa stole and cords.

Kennebec Valley Community College students who meet the following criteria are invited to join the Beta Delta Upsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.  Invitations are issued twice each year to students who:

  • Are in an Associate’s degree program
  • Have completed 12 or more credits at KVCC
  • Have attained a cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.50 or higher
