Areas of Study


Student Engagement and Leadership help encourage campus spirit by partnering with student organizations and clubs on programming and outreach. The resultant fun events and gatherings play an important role in building campus community.

Ways in which we work with organizations and clubs include:

  • Assistance with planning events and activities;
  • Assistance with training new members, officers, and advisors;
  • Advice on registration procedures for student organizations;
  • Scheduling the use of campus facilities;
  • Outlining leadership resources; and
  • Discussing sources of funding and financial procedures.
If your organization members or advisors need assistance, please contact us. We are here to help.
