Student Life Mission Statement
The Student Life Center, as a service to the students of Saginaw Valley State University, seeks to provide opportunities for personal and professional growth and development. The Student Life Center will foster an environment in which students will feel comfortable and respected as they explore and are exposed to advancement in the areas of community service and engagement, culture, diversity, and leadership development. The Student Life Center is dedicated to supporting and faciliating students' learning and development and serves as the catalyst to inspire a sense of RED PRIDE.
Student Life is committed to helping students develop as active citizens and leaders within the community. The variety of programs we offer include networking, professional development, skills workshops, and hands-on experience.
The volunteer opportunities offered by Student Life, including weeklong service trips like Habitat for Humanity and Alternative Breaks, connect students with their community, state and country by giving back to multiple worthy causes.
Registered Student Organizations help students connect with the University in multiple ways. Whether it is using what you learn in the classroom in extracurricular activities or developing new skills and hobbies, being a member of a RSO is a rewarding experience.
