This week in the Office of Student Involvement at the University of Missouri-St. Louis:

  • The Emerging Leaders program is now accepting applications. Emerging Leaders is a unique opportunity for undergraduate UMSL students to get on the fast-track to student leadership, campus and community involvement. Students participating in the Emerging Leaders program will receive an insider’s perspective on Student Involvement at UMSL.  Throughout the program, students will have an opportunity to develop their leadership skills through workshops, activities, and reflection in order to prepare them for future leadership experiences at UMSL and beyond. Interested students can learn more and apply, by visiting the Emerging Leaders portal in TritonSync.
  •  Tiny Tritons and the St. Louis Science Center present Icky Sticky Science, happening November 11 from 10 to 11 a.m. in the J.C. Penney Summit Lounge.  The event is fun for the whole family!  Hands on activities for our Tiny Tritons including: learn about material science, create your own slime, make your own silly putty, and so much more. Coffee will be provided for the parents.
  • The ongoing process of coming out is often difficult and navigating the world from a marginalized space can be emotionally and mentally taxing at times. Join the Office of Student Involvement for a conversation on mental and emotional health in the LGBTQ+ community and enjoy activities to engage in wellness activities.  Refreshments will be provided. The event is October 30, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Fireside Lounge.
