Here in Student Involvement, we are committed to engaging students in exploring their curiosities, developing passions, gaining a better understanding of self and others, and creating lasting community. There are so many ways for all students to make their time at UMSL impactful. 

From student organizations for every interest to fraternities & sororities to leadership and service opportunities, we give you the chance to engage with the UMSL campus in ways that sitting in a lecture hall just can’t do. Meet new people, discover new passions, grow as a leader, and connect your creativity, heart, and intellect to the causes that need it most.

Diversity & Cultural Programs

At UMSL we celebrate diversity! Whether it’s diversity of culture, heritage, sexual orientation, or any other aspect of our community. We know that the more diverse our school is, the stronger we are as individuals and as a community. With student orgs and celebrations of all cultures, we make it easy for all students to learn about and contribute to diversity in our lives.
