Get InvolvedResearch College of Nursing believes in the value of student activities and organizations as a means to facilitate attainment of our Mission and Purposes for every student. Participation outside the classroom provides opportunities for students to learn and practice organizational, interpersonal and leadership skills. The goal is for students to become better prepared to be active participants in a community of professionals and providers of service to society.
Our students have many opportunities for involvement outside the classroom. Student organizations and social and educational activities help students develop leadership skills and get to know other students and faculty. College committees and organizations provide a forum for students to express opinions and ideas about college governance, the curriculum and student life issues.
