Highlands encourages students to look beyond the classroom. The Center for Professional Development & Career Readiness oversees campus clubs and organizations that are established by students. Each club represents a unique interest on campus, so it is almost guaranteed that all Highlands students will find a place for them. If not, start your own!
All chartered campus clubs and organizations must re-apply with the Center for Professional Development & Career Readiness no later than September 15th. New campus clubs and organizations may apply for charter any time during the fall semester.
Visit Engage to find a full list of chartered campus clubs and organizations, to request to join a club or organization, to communicate directly with a club or organizations’ members, and to find upcoming events.
