About the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership

CSIL administers several programs that provide valuable services to the UI student body. Many of these services are free or have a small cost to the student. Services include Student Legal Services, Office Campus Housing Service, and Student Organization Business Office (SOBO). 

Our Impact

Throughout the year, each of our programs and activities assess student learning, program effectiveness, student leader development, and participate in university wide work.
