University Program Associate
Campus Life - 40130
Primary Purpose of Organizational Unit
The Campus Life department supports and gives direction to out-of-classroom learning. Based on the philosophy that learning is not confined to the classroom but is constant and on-going, the mission of the department is to facilitate the educational process by providing a laboratory experience for student growth, and an arena for the development of cultural, social, leadership, and recreational awareness. This is accomplished through the administration of the Fisher Student Center, University Union, Burney Center and Warwick Center and their programs and services, by providing guidance and resources to student leaders and organizations, and serving as the campus’ central point of reference in regard to leadership development, student activities and organizations.
The Conferences, Events, and Reservations unit is an integral part of the Campus Life department. Our facilities are student-centered and serve as focal points for campus life outside the classroom, enhancing the university’s mission to offer a well-rounded educational experience to its students. Within the facilities are a variety of resources, spaces and services to meet the needs of the campus community as well as external clients seeking to utilize Campus Life space. Conferences, Events, and Reservations support over 11,000 events every year in the facilities and generate revenue for the university.
