The Office for Student Engagement (OSE)

Our office serves the Bennington student body by supporting engagement and involvement opportunities to pursue co-curricular interests with the same focus and support garnered in their academic work.

About The OSE

The Office for Student Engagement (OSE) is an extension of the Office of Student Life and is located in the UpCaf. The mission of the Office for Student Engagement is to enhance the educational experience of students by supporting the development of student-driven programming and through the introduction of social, intellectual, recreational, community service and leadership-oriented programming that further enhances the student experience and perspective.

The OSE maintains primary oversight of campus clubs and organizations, student event planning, athletics and recreation programming and facilities, community engagement through Bennington ACTS (Achieving Community Through Services) and a myriad of additional opportunities.
