About Us


Purposeful Student Engagement

We are an important resource for UC students who want to be involved while attending the University of Cincinnati. Staffed with full-time professionals and graduate assistants who are available through the year, the office provides leadership and direction for the more than 400 student organizations, as well as a full range of activities and cultural programs for students.

Our office provides programs that have an intentional educational component, specifically the leadership development of our students when organizing programs or leading a cohort. With all the services and programs we provide, the intent is to build the leadership skills of our students to make them better citizens.
