The Importance of Getting Involved
Student learning and student retention are correlated strongly with student engagement. The more actively engaged students are - with college faculty and staff, with other students, with the subject matter being learned - the more likely they are to persist in their college studies and to achieve at higher levels.
This connection has been emphasized in a number of major studies and reports on the undergraduate experience.
Our mission is to promote student success by providing opportunities for community and public service; identify, engage and develop student leaders in collegiate and community life through participation in student organizations and activities.
- We promote student success via collaboration with student organizations and other University departments.
- We provide opportunities that increase student persistence and retention through integration into the academic and social communities.
- We facilitate the development of student's emotional maturity, autonomy, critical thinking, citizenship, and stewardship through co-curricular involvement and leadership opportunities.
- We offer opportunities for diverse interactions.
