Student Engagement & Leadership


We are the Department of Student Engagement & Leadership (formally known as Student Activities). We offer all types of programs and opportunities for you to grow as a student and as a leader on campus.  We host events like Trivia Nights, Open Mic Nights, Movie Nights; as well as bringing Comedians, Musicians, and Spoken Word Artists on campus.  We also offer opportunities for students to go to conferences and workshops to grow as a leader.  We work closely with all the student clubs and organizationsGreek Life, Intramural & Club Sports, and the Student Government Association.  Most of all, we help provide resources to promote your academic success, interpersonal development, and prepare you for when you graduate from USM.

We encourage you to stop by and chat with a staff member in the Student Engagement Office (Brooks Student Center, Suite 118 in Gorham; Abromson Room 216 in Portland) about upcoming events and related opportunities to help you find your place at USM!
