Student Service

Student Service encompasses 29 departments and units providing a generous array of programs, services, and credit and non-credit learning opportunities that complement students’ classroom experiences and prepare them for a post-college life as engaged citizens. Student Service delivers transformational learning opportunities such as study abroad, student leadership development programs, projects that develop civic responsibility, career identification and preparation programs, and hands-on involvement in campus governance.

Student Service departments also provide a wealth of services that can help students outside the classroom to enrich their lives and improve their studies.
