Fast Facts

The mission of Student Involvement is to champion involvement at NC State University. 

Departmental Overview

The Wolfpack’s starting place for students to get involved at NC State, Student Involvement helps students find fun and meaningful ways to make NC State home through involvement on campus. The department supports the Wolfpack’s diverse community of student organization members, leaders, and advisors through advising, education, and programming. Student Involvement also provides resources to students that make it easy to find organizations to join or start an organization that doesn’t exist.

Getting involved is an important way students can develop the sense of belonging necessary for academic success, personal and professional development. Being involved on campus is a great way to build a sense of belonging at NC State, increase cultural competencies and develop multiple perspectives, as well develop academically, personally, and professionally.
