Center for Student Involvement

About Student Programs and Involvement

Student Programs and Involvement provides opportunities for students to connect around similar interests. These opportunities may lead to leadership, personal growth, community services, professional development and learning from others. K-State recognizes the importance of access to forming and joining organizations that support students' own personal and educational goals. Registering an organization with the university provides for opportunities for students, effective communication and streamlined interaction with the university, which can be done through the center.

Student Programs and Involvement is the point of contact for all registered student organizations. It conducts the annual registration process and provides information and resources to more than 500 student groups.


Student Programs and Involvement advocates for personal and professional growth through student involvement. We accomplish this by providing opportunities, resources, and support for student organizations as a partner within the greater campus community.


Inspire community through involvement.
