    The IUP Center for Student Life (CSL) is composed of: Student Engagement, Student Leadership, Greek Life, Campus Events, LGBTQIA Advocacy, Student Conduct, and Punxsutawney Student Life. The CSL offers and develops services, resources, and experiences that foster personal and community growth through leadership development, engagement, advocacy, and individual and group accountability and prepares students to be productive and successful citizens and learners in a diverse world. 

    The CSL provides opportunities for students to develop skills that enhance lifelong problem-solving, communication, and decision-making abilities in our complex society. Staff members encourage students to forge positive relationships with their peers and participate in values-based student organizations, university traditions, cocurricular activities, and fraternal experiences. The CSL also promotes the development of a university community which is characterized by reasonable safety and security and enforcement of university policies and regulations. These objectives are furthered by challenging students to accept responsibility for their actions and demonstrate responsible behavior, civility, and respect.

    The CSL supports the vision and mission of the university and the Student Affairs Division by empowering students, both individually and collectively, to participate in intentional and interconnected learning and leadership experiences. The CSL encourages good citizenship, responsible stewardship, and engagement as a foundation for current and future success.
