SAE Mission Statement

Student Activities and Engagement (SAE) strives to create a holistic experience through both co-curricular and educational opportunities that foster leadership development and complement the liberal arts focus at the University of Mary Washington. We encourage students to explore their passions and cultivate habits of lifelong learning by providing avenues for personal, professional, intellectual, and social growth in a collaborative environment.

SAE engages these areas of growth through:

  • Supporting student organizations in putting on successful and meaningful events
  • Developing a robust leadership curriculum that challenges and supports student leaders
  • Fostering a welcoming, inclusive, and engaging student-focused space in the SAE office
  • Implementing campus-wide student programs that encourage engagement and interpersonal interaction
  • Guiding student programming boards in carrying out preeminent annual UMW traditions

If you have a question, a suggestion or would just like to speak to a member of our staff, simply stop by the office.
