Student Involvement and Connections

Explore New Interests

The mission of the Office of Student Involvement and Connections (SIC) is: Explore. Connect. Engage. Lead. We work with students as they explore new ideas and interests, their identity, the arts, cultures, and opportunities at Western New England. We foster ways for them to connect to the community, their peers, networks of support, clubs, and organizations, and their goals. We encourage engagement in learning outside of the classroom, leadership development, program planning, community service, and social action. In turn, we inspire our students to lead through involvement in clubs and organizations, employment, activism, peer engagement, and in their communities.

Opporunities Abound

You won’t tackle your journey at WNE alone. With comprehensive advising, tutoring, and academic resources, our student support services are unparalleled. Student Involvement and Connections provides all students with opportunities to explore from the moment they step foot on campus, with the goal of connecting them to their peers, community, and beyond. We are committed to ensuring that students take advantage of pathways, or create their own path, to become engaged members of the community and leaders in their co-curricular involvement.

Leadership at Western New England University happens through experiences. The Division of Student Life Shared Student Leadership competencies are integrated into development series, one-day workshops, and shorter interactive sessions. Students are also encouraged to take hold of opportunities to lead their peers in clubs and organizations, student leadership positions, and by chairing large-scale campus programs.
