Our Purpose

The Office of Student Engagement furthers the educational and inspirational mission of Shenandoah University by providing learning opportunities through student involvement and promoting purposeful and inclusive co-curricular environments with shared experiences and expectations.

This is accomplished by:

  • Creating an environment that supports innovative ideas that stimulate personal growth and contribute to the campus community,
  • Fostering a supportive and inclusive campus environment that complements the academic experience and connects and engages all students,
  • Challenging and supporting students in making meaningful and responsible contributions that develop their character to be global citizens,
  • Creating leadership opportunities that require critical thinking and decision making to inspire change, and
  • Cultivating a collaborative campus environment that allows for the exchange of diverse knowledge, experiences and activities.
