Leadership at WIU

Throughout a student’s time at Western, their involvement on campus is one of the most crucial aspects of their college experience. The Office of Student Engagement provides several opportunities to get connected to campus. We know that a student's main goal during college is to obtain their degree. Statistics show that when a student gets involved on campus they are more likely to graduate. The Leadership Department within the OSE is here to help students get connected to campus and we are excited to be a part of their collegiate journey.
