About Us

Our Mission

The Office of Student Involvement and Leadership empowers Hawks to Get Involved by providing experiences that promote school spirit, servant leadership, and a sense of community. We serve as an integral part of the Student Engagement portfolio of the Division of Student Affairs by supporting innovative and transformative engagement experiences.

Our Vision

Involved Hawks are agents of positive change making an impact in their communities.

Our Core Values


We facilitate Belonging. Student belonging is a critical factor in student persistence and graduation. We encourage students to find connection, establish life-long friendships, and find their space at UHCL.


We are Collaborators. Teamwork makes the dream work. We actively seek out organizational, departmental, and community partners to serve as co-educators and provide diverse experiences that shape holistic experience.


We nourish Community. Civic participation impacts social change and builds organizational capacity. Whether volunteering at a day of service or voting in SGA elections, we create impact in our communities.


We cherish Discovery. Student learning and the pursuit of growth/excellence is at the center of the Hawk experience. We approach student development by nurturing critical thinking and maximizing learning potential.


We Heart U(HCL)! Caring about others is at the Heart of what we do. We are passionate about supporting the diverse needs of the Hawk community by providing service excellence and demonstrating compassion in our professional practice.


We empower Leaders. Leadership is a relational process rooted in integrity, effective communication, and the empowerment of others. We recognize that leadership ranges from student organization officer positions and large events to small interactions of everyday leadership.
