Serving on committees and working groups

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 Engage portal, and through Student Life and Leadership Development (SLLD).

Students should budget about 10 hours per month to participate in these involvements, which include:

  • 2-3 meetings per month
  • email correspondence
  • potential event attendance

To participate in university-wide committees, students must:

  • have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average
  • be enrolled and degree-seeking
  • be in good academic and conduct standing

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