Student Organizations

Only a part of college learning takes place in the classroom. While you are a student at UAPB, you may choose to participate in any number of a wide variety of student activities and organizations. Through these curricular and co-curricular activities, one can develop leadership and communication skills, interact with other leaders, administrators, and faculty/staff, increase his/her awareness of available campus resources and enhance his/her development while at college. It has been found that participation in extra-curricular activities contributes to greater interdependence, more appropriate educational plans, more mature career plans, and more mature life-style plans.

There are a wide variety of student organizations and clubs representing many fields of interest registered at the University. The Office of Student Involvement and Leadership partnerships and extends our services (outreach and in-reach) to community agencies, schools and organizations. These involvements build a service learning community as well as a networking establishment.

Students who desire to participate in activities, join an organization, pursue special interests, or assist in the planning of campus events should contact the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership, or an officer or advisor of the respective organization.

All organizations must be approved on the basis of their potential for providing a worthy supplement to the academic training of students. One goal of the University is to have each student actively participate in at least one organization and reward him/her with the opportunity to become totally developed.
