Student Involvement

Getting involved with a campus organization is a great way for you to meet others with similar interests and it also serves as a learning tool to build your co-curricular transcript and skills that future employers seek. All student organizations are designed to maximize and enhance the Auburn experience building on the academic knowledge you will learn in the classroom. The Office of Student Involvement is home to more than 500 student organizations on campus which are divided among the five branches of the office: Emerge at Auburn (Leadership Programs), Service Programs, Student Governance, Student Programming and Student Organizations.

Emerge at Auburn is a dynamic leadership program aimed at helping Auburn students develop the skills to lead on campus, in the community, and in their future career field. Our multi-tiered program structure is designed for students to engage in a comprehensive learning lab at their own pace and on their own time. Students will move through three phases of leadership curriculum, supplemented by various programs and initiatives.

The Service Programs branch provides opportunities for students to serve the local community and other areas through service projects including AU Dance Marathon, Alternative Student Breaks, IMPACT, The Big Event and many more. Jump in with service programs to engage with the community in an area that you are passionate about.
 

The Student Governance branch is home to the Black Student Union (BSU), International Student Organization (ISO), and Student Government Association (SGA).

The mission of the Black Student Union is to represent the interests and concerns of all black students at Auburn University, bring together all aspects of black student life for the purpose of improving the campus environment, provide support for the students and the community, promote interaction and good relationships among black students and other Auburn students by encouraging pluralism on the part of the faculty, administration and the student body at large.

The International Student Organization is a student organization created to improve multinational understanding and promote relationships between people of different cultures. The International Student Organization also helps ease the process of adaptation for international students. The organization actively promotes diversity and beneficial interaction between international and domestic students.

The mission of the Student Government Association is to “serve and promote the individual student, while unifying all that is Auburn.” SGA works with administrators on campus to ensure that the students’ needs are being met while also providing fun programming activities for all students to attend like Hey Day and Homecoming. SGA implemented a feedback system called Auburn Answers that students can submit their concerns through regarding anything on campus; a student serving in SGA will relay that concern to an administrator and work to resolve the problem. 


The Student Programming branch houses University Program Council (UPC) and Welcome Week.

UPC is a programming board that works to bring a variety of events to campus for students to enjoy. Some of the most popular events are Open Mic Night, Movie in Jordan-Hare Stadium, Cooking Workshop, Speakers & Comedians and concert series “Auburn Airwaves.” Most UPC events are free to students and provide different opportunities to experience something unique on-campus.

Welcome Week is Auburn University’s official welcome to new and returning students each fall. Events are held throughout the first week of fall classes and provides students with the opportunity to attend more than 75 free events, meet new friends and learn more about different campus organizations and departments.


The Student Organizations branch is home to more than 500 student-run organizations on campus. These organizations range from honors and academic groups to special interests to cultural groups. If there is an organization that we don’t offer, then you can start that group on campus. You can find a full listing of organizations and build a profile to assist in finding organizations and events that fit their interests by Student Involvement.

The Involvement Ambassadors are available to serve as a resource for any student or student organization seeking assistance in finding opportunities for involvement. The Involvement Ambassadors provide one-on-one consultations with students as well as conduct workshops for larger groups.
