Welcome to the Department of Student Involvement and Leadership (SIL)!

There are many ways that you can get involved during your time at the University of Michigan-Flint.  We encourage you to join or start a student club/organization, become a member of a fraternity or sorority, attend a program sponsored by the LGBT Center or the Women’s Educational Center, participate in a program sponsored by the Campus Activities Board (CAB) or play in a sports club.

The work of SIL is about Learning, Engagement, and Inclusion.  Our goal is to offer opportunities for students to:

  • Become engaged and responsible leaders
  • Develop life skills and an understanding of one’s values, interests, and goals
  • Think critically and creatively, solve problems and develop new ideas
  • Be inclusive of people with various identities and perspectives, while embracing a diverse campus community

We know that students’ educational success is increased when they are active participants in the learning process both in and outside of the classroom.  Involving every student in a meaningful way to learn and develop themselves leads to a rich and transformational college experience

We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Dr. Michelle O. Rosynsky
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
