Center for Student Involvement

Located in the heart of campus

Exploration expands perspective, and there’s no substitute for hands-on learning through experience. The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) is where curiosity meets community and investigation can become expertise. It’s a space where a love of service can become leading fundraising efforts for breast cancer research or a question about sustainability can lead to becoming a beekeeper.

Located on the top floor of the MU Student Center in the heart of campus, the CSI provides a single, central location for involvement opportunities comprised of Fraternity & Sorority Life, Student Engagement, and Leadership & Service.

Student Engagement

On-campus involvement connects students to experiences and helps build community.

Involvement Ambassadors

The Involvement Ambassadors are a group of experienced students who are available for one-on-one consultations and group presentations that help connect fellow students to resources to get involved on Mizzou’s campus and discuss the importance of campus involvement.

Multicultural Greek Council

The Multicultural Greek Council is the governing council of multicultural-based organizations, including historically Latino/Latina and Asian sororities and fraternities. Although some of these organizations are cultural or identity-based, they are not cultural or identity-exclusive. MGC chapters are open to individuals of all identities and backgrounds. The council strives to create and maintain an all-inclusive and culturally diverse environment, by fostering cultural awareness and upholding fraternal and sororal values.

National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. (NPHC) is the governing council of some of the largest historically African American Greek-letter fraternities and sororities, currently representing over 1.5 million members internationally. The organization boasts a diverse membership comprised of students, celebrities, corporate, political and community leaders. The collective social and economic power of the NPHC has been a major source of change for the African-American community in America since its inception.

Panhellenic Association

The Panhellenic Association (PHA) is the governing body of the Panhellenic sororities affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference. The executive board works year-round to promote unity within the sororities through weekly delegation, frequent events for the whole PHA community, and member development opportunities. Panhellenic works collaboratively with chapter leadership to promote the four Mizzou Panhellenic values and assure the safety and personal and professional development of its members.
