- What is the Campus Involvement Project?
- The Campus Involvement Project is a committee of student leaders who work together to create cohesive plans for increasing awareness of the various campus opportunities and activities available to Stony Brook students. It was originally created by a student through the Office of Commuter Student Services, and is currently hosted by the Division of Student Life. The group is made up of equally contributing student leaders, both commuters and residents, who are dedicated to unifying the campus community by increasing the involvement of all Stony Brook students.
- How does the Campus Involvement Project (CIP) relate to leadership development?
- The way in which the CIP was created and ultimately runs is based on the Social Change Model for Leadership Development. The group works together on the common purpose of creating positive change in their campus community and, in turn, each member develops his/her self-knowledge and leadership competence.
In addition, the group members understand that they became student leaders on campus by taking that “first step” of getting involved in campus life. Therefore, the group is encouraging students to take that first step, knowing that this can be the step towards greater involvement, leadership positions, and leadership development.
