Student Engagement

Building. Student. Life.

The Office of Student Engagement enhances the educational experience by offering a variety of involvement opportunities that challenge, enlighten and entertain. Our programs and initiatives teach students to become stronger leaders, develop positive relationships, respect their peers and community, and immerse themselves in their interests.

We connect students with the Salve Regina community through New Seahawk Orientation, events, student organizations, trainings, advocacy and personal interactions. We strive for an inclusive environment where students can engage with campus life, create a sense of belonging and prepare for future success.
