Training and Recognition

Leadership and Training
The Center for Student Involvement hopes to encourage leadership development potential in all students. Becoming an active part of campus life is an important component of being successful in college. The experience you gain through participating in campus activities will help you adjust to college and provide you with skills you can use the rest of your life.

Training Activities
Training is available to students through classes, workshops, conferences and personal advisement. The Center for Student Involvement is a member of the Milwaukee United Campus Activities Organization (MUCAO) and the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA). Students can get discounts to these organizations’ conferences and training programs. The Center for Student Involvement has a Quick Reference Library which contains one to two-page resource sheets on organizational development, training activities and team-building programs. Currently, there are over 20 topics ranging from how to plan an event to how to run a meeting. The Quick Reference Library is available on the Center for Student Involvement website.
