The Office of Student Involvement has three main goals. We exist to ensure that:
- Students will experience a sense of belonging and connection to the University; being more likely to persist and graduate.
- Students will engage in experiential learning opportunities that facilitate the cultivation of a more complex and accurate understanding of their own intersectional identity development.
- Students will develop professional and interpersonal skills through involvement in student organizations, leadership experiences, service opportunities, workshops, and other experiences.
