Student Leadership and Engagement

Student Leadership and Engagement

The Wolfpack’s starting place for students to get involved at NC State, Student Leadership and Engagement helps students find fun and meaningful ways to make NC State home through involvement on campus. The department supports the Wolfpack’s diverse community of student organization members, leaders, and advisors through advising, education, and programming. Student Involvement also provides resources to students that make it easy to find any of over 700 student organizations to join or start an organization that doesn’t exist.

Getting involved is an important way students can develop the sense of belonging necessary for academic success, personal and professional development. Being involved on campus is a great way to build a sense of belonging at NC State, increase cultural competencies and develop multiple perspectives, as well develop academically, personally, and professionally.

Student Government

Founded in 1921, Student Government is a student-run organization that serves as the official voice of the student body. The organization attempts to better the student experience at NC State by working alongside university administrators to address student concerns.

The University Activities Board

The University Activities Board (UAB) was formed in 1951 to produce quality programming “for the students, by the students.” The mission of UAB is to create innovative activities that stimulate, motivate, educate, and involve the student body. Annual programs include Wolfstock, Pan-Afrikan Week, and TUFFTalks.

Fraternity and Sorority Life

There are over 50 fraternities and sororities at NC State University, each founded to prepare students for society through a values-based fraternal experience.   Affiliation with an organization is designed to empower students to pursue their potential, providing opportunities to belong, give, achieve, live and lead.  How organizations enact those values through membership, programs, and activities are what makes each organization unique. Fraternities and sororities provide opportunities to get involved, helping students on a large campus build a support network of peers that share similar goals and interests.  Organizations challenge members to take on new responsibilities, develop their leadership potential, be active within the campus and surrounding communities, and adopt a commitment to volunteerism and civic engagement.  Fraternities and sororities also provide their members with a unique lifetime membership, connecting them with local graduate and alumni chapters and national alumni groups well after graduation.

Greek Village provides housing to 15 organizations and 526 residents, with six residences in University-owned facilities and nine in privately owned facilities. The Greek Village project is currently in Phase 3 of 5 for planned redevelopment, which is replacing aging infrastructure and aims to provide opportunities for alumni house corporations to design, build, and operate organization-owned housing on campus. A total of 21 building lots will be developed along with 275 additional beds for residents of townhomes and apartments. 

Additionally, nine full-time House Directors and five Chapter Resident Directors live on-side to ensure facility safety as well as compliance with university standards.
