Who We Are
Located on the 1st floor of the Student Center North Building, the Center for Student Involvement provides services for Registered Student Organizations, connects students with opportunities to be involved on campus, and supports many University Sponsored Organizations at the University of Houston.
There are more than 400 student organizations at the University of Houston. Organization categories include campus traditions, student interests, and hobbies, social fraternities and sororities, honors organizations, and major academic focused organizations. If you cannot find an organization that fits your needs, start one!
Additionally, CSI provides resources such as event registration, organization registration, organization mailboxes, and limited carrel space. Our University Sponsored Organizations are also housed on the 1st floor of the Student Center North Building. These organizations receive their funding through student activities fee dollars, and they program for all UH students.
The Center for Student Involvement creates an inclusive and accessible environment that provides meaningful and diverse learning and involvement opportunities to impact student success. Students will gain a sense of self and strong leadership skills, while becoming responsible and engaged citizens in their community.
We will create a culture of involvement by engaging all students in meaningful experiences.
INDIGENOUS LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT
A land acknowledgment provides the opportunity to show reverence, correct the stories and practices that erase Indigenous history and culture, and allow us to move toward inviting and honoring the truth. With this in mind, and as we stand on this land acknowledged by the University of Houston as a profound place of significance, we embrace this land acknowledgment:
We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Houston exists and operates. This is the traditional land of the Tāp Pīlam Coahuiltecan, Akokisa, Atakapa-Ishak, the Sana band of the Tonkawa tribe, Esto'k Gna, and Karankawa nations. Just as this land was once a location for healing, prayer, and community, we come together so that it may again serve all of these functions today. We honor the communities whose ancestral land we stand on and celebrate all indigenous peoples who call Houston home. Today, we are grateful for the opportunity to be in unity in this physical and metaphysical space, to open our hearts to each other in the spirit of sharing our experiences and learning from each other. Learning about the culture and heritage of our indigenous communities is a necessary first step to dismantling systemic injustice against our communities.
"Land is part of who we are. It's a mixture of our blood, our past, our current, and our future. We carry our ancestors in us, and they're around us. As you all do." – Mary Lyons (Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe)Developed by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion in partnership with the Indigenous Awareness Association (IAA).
