This leaves 21 hours a week to serve on a committee, run for student government, become active in hall council or participate in any of the other activities and organizations that make up campus life.

Student involvement is an important part of the University experience. Desired outcomes from student involvement include:

  • Augmenting communication skills
  • Reinforcing ethical behavior and integrity
  • Developing accountability and responsibility
  • Strengthening conflict management skills
  • Enhancing social competence
  • Learning group dynamics
