MSU Denver

Student Affairs is committed to ensuring that every Roadrunner has the resources and opportunities they need to succeed. In addition to the enrollment and financial resources students need on their academic journey, we also support student organizations, leadership opportunities, innovative career readiness programming and industry connections, recreation and club sports, and health and wellness offerings to fit all interests.

As a community of students and staff, we rely on the three pillars of Student Affairs – career success, equity and inclusion, and student engagement – to guide our work, as we strive to create diverse programming that elevates student voices and affirms students’ identities and experiences. We give our all every day to ensure your time as a Roadrunner is memorable, purposeful and impactful.

Classroom to Career Hub

The Classroom to Career (C2) Hub provides career development programs and activities for all MSU Denver students. We strive to embed experiential learning and career engagement into the full Roadrunner experience. Our exploratory advisors support students who have not yet chosen a major to map out an academic plan aligned to their career aspirations. Students can develop important leadership skills by serving as a Peer Mentor while also supporting fellow Roadrunners in navigating the campus and virtual environment. As a student, you have access to a variety of online resources including resume review tools and our database, Career Link, of employment and internship opportunities. The C2 Hub team is ready to support your journey toward a fulfilling career by offering:

Student Engagement & Wellness (SEW)

Student Engagement and Wellness is an array of departments and services that help students be their best selves, stay the course, and succeed in school, career, and life. We believe that wellness is more than just good grades or a good job, it also means taking care of our minds, bodies and spirits. We also recognize that life happens, so our team of professionals has you covered so you can get support and stay the course. And lastly, college is the perfect time to try something new, make new friends and explore new activities and interests, so we have a wide variety of programming designed with you in mind:
