Developing and investing in Ole leaders is a core function of the Office of Student Activities.

Through the fulfillment of our mission, the OSA strives to actively empower students in their leadership skills during their time on the Hill. We firmly believe leadership is more than a position you hold – it’s about the positive change you are a part of creating. Whether you are a part of SGA, an officer for a student organization, advocating for a cause you are passionate about, or desire to make an impact on the greater community, we are here to support you in the discernment of your leadership style and voice.
