It is our purpose to plan and implement events for the entire University community on both the Monroe Park Campus and the MCV Campus. The USC&A staff provide event advising to student organizations as well as co-curricular opportunities for student involvement. We strive to assist students in developing an appreciation for diversity, responsibility, critical thinking and sensible skills to become life long learners, productive citizens, and community leaders.
