Who is the Student Engagement Team?

Welcome to our Student Engagement Page! The Student Engagement Department at Alliance University is here to help provide an environment where our students can gather together and enjoy themselves as well as have a voice within our institution. Most importantly, we want our students to know they have a place where they belong and can grow in community.

The Student Engagement Department is composed of three student-leadership teams:

  1. Student Government Association (SGA)
  2. Student Engagement team (SE)
  3. Resident Advisory Committee (RAC).

The combined goal of all 3 teams’ is to help cultivate a strong community here at Alliance University! The SE team provides a variety of events for students to participate in and create community. The SGA team’s focus is on being the student body’s voice and advocating on behalf of the student body. The RAC team is composed of two facilitators and residential students to give feedback regarding the residential experience.

What is the Mission Statement for Student Engagement?

The Office of Student Engagement at Alliance University exists to engage the student body through programming and advocacy that builds community, connection with the institution and equips students to change the world.

Student Engagement - Nyack College

Here at Alliance University, we are dedicated to giving our students opportunities in leadership that will best equip and prepare them to be leaders in our world and for the works of God. Through acts of service and guidance from our staff, we work to better our students and help them step into the leadership God has called them into. For Student Engagement, we are able to create environments for fellowship and community through student envisioned and produced events. Students also receive scholarships when hired to be in these roles.
