Student Involvement & Leadership

Update: SIL is determined to provide all services without interruption for the 2020-2021 school year. Our offices will be open for appointments as well as hold virtual hours each week. All events and services will have a virtual component as well as in-person. Please stay tuned for details around our major events from SIL, Campus Activities Board, and Associated Students!   


Student Involvement & Leadership (SIL) is committed to fostering the holistic development of students by providing services that empower them to gain a better understanding of their personal potential through opportunities that cultivate leadership, meaningful relationships, and life-long learning in an inclusive environment. 

Goals & Outcomes


  • Establish and implement co-curricular services and leadership programs that will enhance students’ skills and cultural competency. 
  • Create opportunities for students to connect with other members of the community via programs and events that enhance the student experience. 
  • Develop students, whole person, to be educated leaders and citizens which is in congruence with the Saint Mary’s mission: “To create a student-centered educational community whose members support one another with mutual understanding and respect.” 

Student Learning Outcomes 

As a result of engaging with Student Involvement & Leadership, students will learn to: 

  • Gain a better understanding of the complexities behind organizational work while developing skills that allow them to succeed in ever-changing, growing, and adapting organizations

  • Obtain tangible professional skills that upon graduation will make them competitive in the job market

  • Increase their sense of belonging within the Saint Mary’s community by engaging with campus partners/resources, student organizations, and student leaders (partner v resource)

  • Engage with different identities to gain a broader understanding of their own
