Center for Student Involvement Role

The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) is responsible for the general oversight of student organization financials. CSI acts as a liaison between student organizations and other areas of the University (such as procurement and accounts payable) to ensure proper processing of financial transactions through the state’s payment system. Additionally, CSI assists organizations in identifying and working with vendors, as necessary.

The financial partnership between CSI and student organization leaders relies on each party meeting its responsibilities. A non-exhaustive list of responsibilities is below.
