Office of Engagement, Equity, and Inclusion

By engaging with our services and programs students will advance their critical thinking, social consciousness, cultural competency and personal development skills.

Clubs and Organizations

With a host of student organizations, there are more opportunities than ever to meet new friends, discover a cause, or find a creative outlet.

The easiest way to get involved is to attend the semi-annual Student Involvement Fair.  The fair is held at the start of each fall and spring semester and features members from various student organizations who can help answer questions and get you connected with organizations that interest you. Can't find one you like? Start your own organization!

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) represents the diverse student body of Roosevelt University.  SGA will foster open communication among students, faculty, staff, and other administrators to pursue positive change on behalf of every student at Roosevelt University.

SPEED

Students Programming for Enrichment, Enlightenment, and Development (SPEED), is the student programming board for the  University.  In accordance with Roosevelt's mission of “educating socially conscious citizens for active and dedicated lives as leaders in their professions and their communities,” SPEED, will provide students with opportunities for personal and educational development within the RU community and the community at-large.
