Student Life

The division of Student Affairs interacts with SIUE students on a daily basis through organizations, events, leadership training, volunteer opportunities, recognition programs, and general support.

Many of these activities are funded through private donations. A few prime examples are: the Kimmel Scholarship that recognizes a student’s volunteer activities and community service; the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship that recognizes students who most exemplify Dr. King’s work and beliefs; and the Club Sports Development Fund in Campus Recreation that helps support the University’s club sports programs. There are numerous other scholarships, awards, and development funds that recognize student efforts and provide additional funding to enhance student life on campus.

For more information about how you can help enrich student life at SIUE, contact the Director of the Kimmel Leadership Center Kelly Jo Karnes at (618) 650‑2686 or by email at
