About Us

The Office of Student Activities, Involvement, and Leadership (SAIL) is comprised of three main areas which include leadership development programs for all students, Social Events for students, and New Student Orientation. While each has their own focus, the three areas work cohesively to create a fun, engaging, resourceful, and positive environment for students outside of the classroom. The office strives to promote programs and workshops based on inclusiveness, leadership, and innovation. We work to create a welcoming environment that celebrates individuality; a place open to creativity and forward thinking, even as we continue to honor the traditions of the past.
