Welcome to CAC Student Engagement
Students being involved within their campus community has been shown to increase retention and completion of a degree program. Our goal at CAC is to graduate every student that walks through our doors and to provide them a world-class learning experience.
The office of Student Engagement is here to provide an outlet to increase your sense of belonging on campus whether it is through campus activities/events, joining or forming a club/organization, or providing assistance in connecting you with the proper resources to enhance your learning experience.
Many student activities are available at each Central Arizona College campus. Student activities are sponsored by College Departments, Clubs and Organizations, and the Student Government Association.
Take some time to look at the Events Calendar (coming soon). This will provide an overview of activities/events that are hosted by the Office of Student Engagement. Be aware that other clubs/organizations or departments may host events as well that are not listed on the calendar. It is also important to note that each campus may be hosting their own activities/events.
Each CAC club will have representatives available. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet people interested in the same things you are. Select a club you like, learn when it meets, and try it! You can also discover ways to start your own club or organization.
Get involved in the Student Government Association, the district-wide organization that is the voice for CAC students. See the Student Government Association web page.
