Who We Are
For over 100 years, Student Involvement has provided a foundation for students to shape their lives, professions and societies. We believe that 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.
Employers recognize student involvement as an essential part of gaining real world experience. Students advance their skill sets and expand their network beyond the university, leading to bigger opportunities in the future.
Student Involvement inspires and empowers students and organizations to prepare for life after Washington State University through meaningful involvement.
Our vision is that all WSU students are challenged to participate beyond the classroom.
