Leadership Opportunities

Student Service Organizations

Student Civic Engagement advises student organizations that focus on leadership in social service and civic engagement. Working with these organizations will provide students with opportunities for service, developing or enhancing leadership skills through service and establishing fellowship.

Students who are interested in opportunities with the following organizations should contact the advisor listed for each student group and/or join the group through the Panther Involvement Network. Students can also search the Panther Involvement Network to find other service based organizations not advised by Student Civic Engagement staff members or visit Leadership Development to learn more about their offerings.
