The Student Leadership Involvement, Formation and Empowerment Office (Student LIFE) seeks to develop and implement programs that promote self-sustaining development and positive influence towards effective personal and organizational leadership. It takes charge of ensuring smooth and well-balanced implementation of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities of the different units/student organizations under the University Student Government, Council of Student Organizations, Graduate Student Council, Graduate Student Organizations, and other student groups. It also encourages student involvement and helps orient freshmen and graduate school learners on University life.
This is designed to acquaint new undergraduate and graduate students to the University’s Mission statement, campus facilities and offices, and the Lasallian community. More importantly, it aims to provide students a better understanding of the Lasallian culture and heritage.
Campus Tours and Ushering Services
With the assistance of the Lasallian Ambassadors, the Office provides campus tour services to feeder schools and guests and ushering services for official University events. The Lasallian Ambassadors is a special group of qualified undergraduate students who also assist in welcoming the freshmen during the Lasallian Personal Effectiveness Program (LPEP).
Student LIFE provides student leaders with an awareness and understanding of the basic concepts and theories, as well as skills, principles, and techniques that will lead to the effective leadership and management of their organizations.
Organizational Development Interventions (OD Interventions)
The office assists client student organizations in solving problems which hinder their effectiveness through a systematic diagnosis of the client organization’s problem/s; formulating appropriate interventions and/or programs aimed at resolving issues identified; and providing follow-through services towards increasing organizational effectiveness.
