Student Organizations

Why Student Leadership?

Student life at Moody includes much more than merely academic coursework and ministry training opportunities. Moody offers a wide range of exciting ways for students to get involved on campus and in the community.

Moody student groups and organizations exist to edify and mature our student body, honing students' gifts and broadening their knowledge of the world. Each of Moody's student groups has a specific focus and also helps to give students an opportunity to learn about issues such as leadership, cross-cultural understanding, mentoring, outreach, media, and personal wellness.

The Office of Student Programs advises student groups, organizations and class councils in the areas of leadership, budgeting, planning and the facilitation of campus-wide events. For more information, please contact Student Programs.
