Campus and Professional Engagement

Throughout your experience at Bloomsburg, various volunteer and student engagement opportunities will present themselves and we highly encourage your involvement.

On Campus at Bloomsburg

This can include serving as a mentor to an undergraduate enrolled in Act 101, the Pennsylvania EOP program; supporting campus standards via a role with the university conduct board; assisting with campus events; advising a student organization, or facilitating a small group discussion with Conversations for the Common Good. We also encourage CSA students to engage with the CSA program and their peers through Chi Sigma Alpha, Student Affairs Honor Society and by serving as a CSA Connector (our ambassador program).

The Profession

Students are encouraged to engage with the larger field of College Student Affairs:

  • Attend a local, state, or regional, or national professional conference
  • Propose and present an educational session at a professional conference—by yourself, with a classmate, with a CSA faculty member, with a student affairs practitioner
  • Volunteer for committee work (sometimes called Commissions or Knowledge Communities)
  • Write a blog post or a regular blog series like Bloomsburg University Explore
  • Apply to become an ACPA Ambassador or NASPA G.A.P. affiliate
  • Assist a faculty member with their research
  • Contribute to Chi Sigma Alpha

We encourage you to seek out these and related experiences to expand your exposure to college students, apply concepts learned in your coursework, and hone your skills.

Chi Sigma Alpha

Chi Sigma Alpha is a student affairs academic and professional international honor society—not a fraternity or sorority—developed to promote and recognize excellence in academics, research, and service to the profession of student affairs.

Chi Sigma Alpha is more than an honor. When you accept membership, you commit to the organization; members are expected to act as leaders in our program, on our campus, and in our profession. Chi Sigma Alpha offers a variety of social events and leadership activities for its members and all CSA students.
