Welcome to student life at SP2!

At SP2, our students enjoy the advantages of a small, nurturing school community nestled in a large, vibrant teaching and research university. The School’s administration and faculty value student involvement, and students play an active role in shaping the School’s culture, policies, and future directions. Our students are invited to serve on SP2 and University governance and planning committees, where they have the chance to be heard on issues related to student policies and procedures, curriculum, and field placement/internships. Other opportunities for students to enhance their academic experience at SP2 include getting involved in student organizations and taking advantage of support centers and student hubs at the School and around campus.
