Who We Are

For more than 100 years, Student Involvement has provided a foundation for students to shape their lives, professions and societies. We believe student involvement creates a transformative out-of-the-classroom experience.

Students are challenged to develop their own ideas, critically analyze perspectives, work as a team to find innovative solutions, and anticipate the impact of their decisions within a learning environment.
