What is the Involvement Center?
The Kean University Involvement Center is a joint venture between the Office of Student Government, Center for Leadership and Service, Miron Student Center Operations and Event Management Office and Kean University’s student governments to provide a centralized location, or hub, for student involvement at the University.
In addition to providing a vast array of resources to all of Kean University’s 140+ recognized student groups, the Involvement Center is a focal point for students wishing to become involved at Kean University and is staffed by a team of student leaders who are extensively trained in connecting students to involvement opportunities and providing student group consultation and mentoring services. The Center consists of three conference rooms for executive board or small group meetings, a resource room complete with student group supplies and tools, lockers for student group storage and mailboxes for all of the recognized student groups.
Located in Miron Student Center, Room 303, the Involvement Center is open five days per week with late night hours convenient for student groups and students.
