The Campus Life Student Advisory Board (CLSAB) provides input, feedback, and advice to the Division of Campus Life on vision, policies, processes, programming, climate, and decisions related to the campus community and student engagement. CLSAB brings a diverse set of student backgrounds and experiences from a wide range of student interests and roles in Campus Life to apply to the Division’s strategic processes and decision making. CLSAB holds the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice as critical to its process and practice. CLSAB acts as a conduit between the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life and the student body, by gathering input and feedback from students on key issues and questions affecting the campus community ensuring the representation of a broad range of student perspectives.
CLSAB, under its charge, may also directly implement programming or initiatives that are in line with the mission and vision of the Division of Campus Life. Student members of CLSAB can also serve as student representatives on various search committees.
The 15 members of CLSAB are undergraduate students who apply through an established recruitment & selection process each year. These members serve a renewable 1-year term.
The Board itself is designed to be extremely diverse, including:
- Programmatic diversity: students involved in Residential Life, Student Centers, Athletics, Student Government, Religious and Spiritual Life, Health & Wellness, Student Organization Leadership, etc.
- Class year diversity: balancing under- and upper-class year students
- Identity-based diversity: race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, first-generation, ability, etc.
- Academic diversity: liberal arts, sciences, etc.
