Get involved

Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to participate in university-wide committees and working groups, which are vital components to university service and engagement on-campus. Committees and working groups cover a wide array of topics, such as: Equity and Inclusion, Space Allocation, Student Success, and much more.

Metropolitan State University participates in a shared governance model, which means that student representation and voice are important components to decision-making. Students can learn about involvement opportunities on the university website, the OrgSync portal, and through Student Life and Leadership Development (SLLD).

Students should budget about 10 hours/month to participate in these involvements, which include: 2-3 meetings per month, e-mail correspondence, and potential event attendance. Students must have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average, be enrolled and degree-seeking, and be in good academic and conduct standing to participate in university-wide committees.

If a student is interested in participating on a committee or working group, they can fill out the Involvement Form on the OrgSync portal. Students should indicate their availability (taking classes, work, and other co-curricular involvements into account) and rank the top 5 committees or working groups they are most interested in participating. SLLD will facilitate the process of matching students with involvements on-campus, and will correspond with students and committees within 2 weeks of submitting an involvement form.
