Welcome to the Office of Student Involvement

The Office of Student Involvement enriches the student collegiate experience and serves the campus community through the active involvement of students, faculty, and staff in quality programs and organizations. Life at VU is filled with many opportunities for you to become an integral part of the Villanova community, as well as enriching your time at the university. There are so many options to choose from that will add to your experience on campus.

The Campus Activities Team (CAT) seeks to further the Augustinian values of Unitas, Veritas, and Caritas on Villanova’s campus by creating programming and experiences for students and for the Villanova community as a whole. This is done through creating events and programs for everyone, aiding other clubs and organizations to create the events they would like to see on campus, and presenting different perspectives and narratives to the university’s campus.

The Office of Student Involvement invites our graduate students to get involved in the graduate organizations available on campus.

The Office of Student Involvement provides a wide variety of leadership development opportunities for students including The Villanova Leadership Program, the annual Spotlight on Leadership lecture, as well as the Villanova Challenge course featuring a low ropes team building course on campus!


Saint Thomas of Villanova, the patron saint of the University, dedicated his life to working with the impoverished and most vulnerable people in his city. Following St. Thomas’ example, the work of service and justice are central to the mission of Villanova. This mission can be the lived experience of Villanovans through weekly service opportunities, days of service, or student service organizations.
