Student Engagement

The Office of Student Engagement offers a variety of services to both the Tarleton State University campus and the Stephenville community. We serve as a support system for all registered student organizations at Tarleton. Student Engagement hosts Risk Management sessions, Howdy Week, organizational luncheons, Homecoming events, and offers support for active organizations, as well as new organizations.  Student Engagement oversees the following opportunities:

The School Wide Activities Team (SWAT, the universities official student programming board) offers programs that provide opportunities for the students to build leadership skills, embrace new experiences, and develop through relationships.

The Organizational Zone (O-Zone), which responds to the needs of organizations and is the source for new students to get information on which organization will best suit their needs. The O-Zone helps with publicity design, printing, paperwork, and other services as needed.

Tarleton L.E.A.D.S. is a prestigious two-semester leadership certification program that utilizes in-class and out-of-class experiences to develop student leaders. 

The mission of Tarleton Serves is to assist members of the Tarleton State University community in finding meaningful volunteer experiences that enrich learning, teach civic responsibility and strengthen our community.  Alternative Spring Break and Tarleton Roundup are part of Tarleton Serves. 

StrengthsQuest is a program designed to help you identify your talents to achieve success in the classroom, on campus, in your relationships, and in career planning for life beyond your college experience. 

Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, is also under the Office of Student Engagement.

Our overall goal is to provide activities and programs that meet the social, cultural, recreational, and intellectual needs of Tarleton Students. Student Engagement strives to enhance student learning and complement the total educational experience.
