The Student Activities staff serves as a resource for student leaders, programming boards and over 250 registered student organizations through advising, leadership development and organizational support services. The mission of Student Activities and Student Organizations, by way of exemplary service, is to operate as a resource and catalyst for student development by fostering a learning environment that empowers students to engage and participate in a diverse array of enriching opportunities. In collaboration with the University community, the office strives to further students’ personal and professional development through involvement while celebrating their uniqueness.
