At CSUMB, we want you to feel at home. We are committed to fostering a campus environment that supports a healthy mind, body, and spirit for all members of the Otter community. Empowerment, Integrity, Social Justice, Stewardship, and Wellness are the guiding principles of Student Engagement & Leadership Development (SELD), where dedicated staff and students promote action, personal growth, exploration, leadership development, career readiness and academic success. As a service of the Division of Student Affairs, SELD serves a critical role in ensuring the education and development of the whole student and achieving the academic mission of the institution. We are committed to achieving these goals by providing a wide array of programs, campus events, leadership and civic engagement opportunities to support students’ collegiate endeavors from orientation to graduation.
