Involvement Week

6th Annual Involvement and Leadership Week

Thursday, January 26 – Friday, February 3, 2023

Involvement and Leadership Week is the perfect time to think about ways you can be more engaged on campus. Whether you would like to join a student organization, become a Student Center manager, or develop as a campus leader, Involvement and Leadership Week is the best time to learn how you can get involved and make a difference.

Get ready for Involvement and Leadership Week 2023!

It is with great excitement that we invite you to join the Division of Student Affairs’ annual Involvement and Leadership Week 2023! During the week of Thursday, January 26 through Friday, February 3, Student Centers and Activities will be celebrating and highlighting the contributions of our student leaders and more than 500 student organizations.

Our community is composed of students from all walks of life, gifts, and achievements, but what is magnificent is when together they explore their interests, talents, and passions in efforts to impact change, grow, develop, and support one another.

Being involved at the university has many benefits including professional development, leadership experience, and the opportunity to build one’s character and social/professional network. Student Centers and Activities has teamed up with various organizations and partners to plan a week of excitement aimed at celebrating our student leaders and student organizations.
