The Office of Student Involvement and Development promotes the development of individual students, enabling them to pursue a challenging variety of roles and leadership opportunities, to function in a wide range of environments and to appreciate the great diversity of individual differences while pursuing their academic goals. We prepare students for an international, multicultural society and promote an understanding and appreciation of the peoples, natural environments, cultures, economies and diversity of the world.
