Supporting student leaders

The Center for Student Involvement moves to a new home.

The Urso Center for Student Involvement makes it easier than ever for students to pursue their passions outside the classroom.

Located on the second floor of the university center, the space has a soft seating area as well as private offices—a combination that lets students connect with staff in whichever setting they find most comfortable.

“We want students to feel that the Urso Center belongs to them, not just to staff,” said Jaclyn Kuwik, assistant director for student involvement.

The Urso Center provides clubs and organizations with workstations and a meeting room. It also has a resource room, which contains office and art supplies that can help students run and promote their events.

The latest technology helps staff and students work more effectively. Digital screens allow staff to share the latest news, events and student accomplishments instantly. Electronic locks allow student leaders access to the space 24/7.

“One of our goals is to help students become more independent during their years here,” said Kuwik. “Having freer access to work areas and supplies helps them feel more autonomous.”

Knights of the Roundtable, Lynn’s student government organization, are the first permanent student occupants.

A generous gift from Charles Urso, who also donated the marble for Lynn’s breathtaking Remembrance Plaza, made the Center for Student Involvement possible.
