Our Mission

The Office of Student Involvement actively strives to provide opportunities for students to enhance their leadership capacity and strengthen their campus engagement. Through environments that are socially just, culturally engaged, and civically involved, the office will enrich the students' overall educational experience.

Service is about giving back to the university, Carbondale, and greater Southern Illinois communities.  Students working to promote service will find opportunities to collaborate with their peers, university departments, and community organizations. A commitment to helping those in need drives our students in their pursuit to foster inclusivity, integrity, equity, and welfare in society.  As a department, we work with our student organizations to ensure they have the self-efficacy necessary to achieve their philanthropic ambitions.
