leadership opportunities

The leadership opportunities at Cal State Monterey Bay are uniquely designed to offer students a co-curricular experience that supports the University's Vision. We offer a diverse range of events and most are free for students and offer great networking, career building, growth and development opportunities whether you are a first-year student or a graduate student. Personal and professional growth is something that never stops happening, so why stop here? Go to one or many of these workshops and sessions to further your own social and emotional intelligence. Don't you want to be the best you can be? "Leadership is action, not position." -D.H. McGannon

student clubs and organizations

Student organizations offer an excellent way to meet others, develop leadership skills, deepen specific interests and concerns, and become part of the experiences that lay the foundation of our university and help fulfill its Vision. By becoming involved, your time at CSUMB will become more meaningful, productive, and enjoyable, and you will enhance your learning outside of the classroom.

Open to all members of the CSUMB community including staff and faculty, student organizations enrich our campus life through events, programs, activities, projects, and service. They fall into several categories including academic, community service, cultural, political/social action, recreations, religious, and sports. In short, CSUMB organizations are diverse and very active, so our campus offers countless ways to be involved!
