64 Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement The Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement (CLSE) is home to the Student Events and Activities (SEA) Board, more than 150 registered undergraduate student organizations, the Inter-Organizational Council (IOC), the Diversity Student Council (DSC), and the Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA). This office hosts and sponsors university-wide events such as the Student Life Achievement Awards, Sharkapalooza, Homecoming, and CommunityFest. CLSE is also responsible for our Sharks on the Scene (S.O.S.) Program, offering students exclusive discounted tickets to some of the largest events South Florida has to offer. Additionally, CLSE oversees the Fraternity and Sorority Life Office (FSL), Orientation, and the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Resource Center (DEIB). The FSL office oversees our 12 social Greek lettered organizations by 3 distinct councils: Collegiate Fraternal Council, Panhellenic Council, and Unified Greek Council. Joining the Greek Community provides opportunities for academic support, social networking, service to the greater community, and a chance to be a part of NSU tradition. The DEIB Resource Center serves as a catalyst for the recognition and coordination of the celebration of our diverse student body and offers resources, support, and inclusive programming activities. This resource center seeks to strengthen and enrich the NSU community through engagement opportunities, educational programming, vast cultural experiences, and support for traditionally underrepresented student populations to cultivate a continually sensitive and unified campus environment. CLSE plays a key role in assisting students to develop an affinity to NSU through engagement in organizations and activities related to their interests. Office of International Affairs The Office of International Affairs (OIA) serves as a base for the university’s international initiatives, including international student services, academic international travel, international risk management, travel registration procedures, and undergraduate international recruitment and admissions. The office also houses NSU’s premier global engagement program, the Razor’s Edge Global program, a curricular/ cocurricular scholarship program for exceptional undergraduate students charged with serving as change agents and engaging others in global citizenship. OIA includes the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS), the Office of Education Abroad (OEA), and the Office of International Undergraduate Admissions (OIUGA). The OIA also provides ongoing assistance and support for all members of the university community engaged in campus internationalization, global partnerships and exchanges, and other globalization efforts. • The Office of International Student Scholars (OISS) provides immigration, orientation, counseling, and overall assistance to all new and continuing international students, visiting scholars, and faculty members on and off campus. • The Office of Education Abroad (OEA) provides comprehensive assistance to all students (domestic and international) who wish to travel abroad on any of the many international travel experiences offered at the institution including summer, semester, and academic year study abroad programs, faculty-led travel study programs, international internships and international service learning opportunities. • The Office of International Undergraduate Student Admissions (OIUGA) provides comprehensive international student recruitment and admission support for prospective international students.
