    Hi colleagues,

    I am doing some benchmarking.  For departments that include the student unions that are event management/operations/facility management AND student involvement/leadership/engagement work, what are your department names?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Jennifer,


    We just merged our Office of Student Activities with Student Centers & Programming Services to become Student Engagement.

    hello Jennifer and all!

    SUNY Oneonta currently is called the Office of Student Life and Leadership official but we add "at the Hunt College Union" on many of our correspondence.

    Hello! At Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) we are University Student Commons & Activities (aka The Commons).Half of our team is events services and building related, and the other half is student organizations, leadership, civic engagement, and programming.
