The Center for Student Involvement & Leadership provides students with meaningful interactions outside of the classroom that connect students with their peers and with other members of the John Jay College community. These interactions help students unify their educational experiences with their lived experiences, provoking critical thought and motivating them to develop a sound system of values. The Center for Student Involvement & Leadership assists student organizations in planning and organizing a wide range of activities, including free film series, parties, day trips, fairs and workshops. It coordinates lectures, social occasions, leadership programs and cultural presentations for student organizations, and provides information about campus meetings and events. These programs aim to enrich students’ experiences, encourage them to develop their leadership abilities and express their talents. They allow students to build strong connections with peers that have diverse backgrounds and interests. These programs are supported by the student activity fee and managed by the Student Activities Association Board of Directors, commonly referred to as the BOD.
