The mission of Carlos Albizu University’s Office of Student Services is to support academic excellence by providing services and activities to students to facilitate their academic progress as well their professional and personal development. It is an integral part of Carlos Albizu university to promote a sense of belonging and what a better way to foster this positive feeling than being a part of an association or group of students.
The student organizations listed below take an active role in the realization of our mission. It is through the efforts of the student organizations that CAU provides the content and themes of the student life campaign and the distinguished lecture series. We encourage you to join the organizations and take an active role in building upon the successes of your predecessors. We will provide you with the opportunity to establish your footprint in both the classroom and the community.
Years from now, when the memories of long nights cramming for midterms and finals while still balancing other responsibilities fade away, you will realize that the college moments you cherish most took place outside the classroom. A huge part of a well-rounded college experience is the opportunity to explore new interests, new friends and to discover who you are.
Carlos Albizu University’s Student Council always seeks new and fresh ideas from students like you. This promotes communication, cooperation and understanding among students, faculty and administration, and also suggests ways to promote the best interests and objectives of a growing and active academic community.
The Student Council’s overall functions are to provide the students with a vocal gateway when it comes to situations that can improve the college experience at CAU. We are here to focus on creating an engaging environment that complements the rigor of your academic program. By developing a stimulating series of student life experiences, this encourages students to network outside the classroom and creates a familiar sense of community.
As part of our CAU community, Student Council members are always encouraging our students to make a voice for themselves and be a part of our “family”.
