The growth and development of Washington State University Vancouver has led to many new events and opportunities for people to engage on and off campus. Several programs and events have become favorites of the students, campus and local community and OSI is proud to coordinate some of these successful activities. We want to see you participate in all of them before you graduate.
Cougar Leadership Series
This leadership series is a partnership between the Office of Student Involvement (OSI) and the Associated Students of Washington State University Vancouver (ASWSUV). The OSI programming intern and the ASWSUV director of leadership development collaborate in an effort to develop and execute leadership programming for the students of WSU Vancouver. Several events are planned throughout the year.
