Why You Should Get Involved: 

On average, involved students have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate. Getting involved in college helps you meet new people, gain professional experience within your major or minor, develop your leadership and communication skills and just have fun here at CMU! It builds up your resume and gives you experiences that make you a more well rounded student and future employee.

Our Mission: 

To help first-year and uninvolved students who may not easily find involvement opportunities discover ways to get involved and engaged on campus. Peer Involvement Advisors (PIAs) provide campus resources for campus involvement and raise awareness of the importance of being involved. The PIAs serve as a bridge between new and uninvolved students and the Office of Student Activities & Involvement. Through the role of the PIAs, new and uninvolved students have access to peer advising and developmental support that will enable them to increase their level of engagement via social integration with the campus community. The PIAs strive to provide students with resources and support to get involved through one-on-one involvement advising sessions as well as outreach.
