Student Involvement & Leadership
As part of the Division of Student Affairs, Student Involvement & Leadership is home to five departments: Student Activities and Organizations, Greek Life, Leadership and Service-Learning, Intercultural Affairs and Student Centers; two programs: Student Activities Board and Student Government Association; and two centers: the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center and the Jesse Peel LGBT Resource Center.
Student Involvement & Leadership enhances the educational experience for all students by helping to build a sense of campus community through a wide variety of programs and services for individuals and student groups. Through a broad range of co-curricular, cultural, educational, recreational, and social programs, the unit supports the university’s commitments of student success, public service, and regional transformation.
