Center for Student Involvement is a student fee funded unit with the primary goals of providing a comprehensive leadership program that provides support and enhances student engagement within student-led organizations in addition to executing a variety of social and cultural programs.
CSI staff provides one-on-one contact and consultation to brainstorm ideas, listen to any challenges that may exist and help figure out strategies and solutions. In support to all student-fee funded units and campus clubs/organizations, CSI also provides assistance in a variety of ways including consulting on event management, personnel issues, budget development and management, billing, purchasing, fundraising and contracting. Additionally, CSI offers support to faculty/staff, who serve as advisors for clubs/organizations by assisting them with EOU policies and procedures and provide advisor trainings (i.e. risk management, conflict management, officer transition and diversity).
The Center provides resources for student groups to work on projects and get additional assistance. These resources include color copier usage, mailbox space, work areas and poster making supplies for publicity purposes. Services are provided to the student body from 8 am to 5 pm with appointments scheduled as necessary.
Leadership opportunities for individuals to serve on steering committees and participate are encouraged with the recruitment of prospective students through fairs and additional outreach.
