Our office oversees the following areas:

  • Civic Engagement and volunteer programming

We are here to help you have the best college experience! The office is committed to providing an atmosphere where people can come together, work together, and share goals. The staff assists individuals and groups in a wide variety of areas, such as event organization, financial management and planning, publicity, and event evaluation.
