The Office of Student Involvement coordinates and helps students plan social, cultural, educational, and recreational programs and facilitates Orientation for incoming students. Student programs and events at Pratt are planned to contribute to each student's total education as well as to meet social and recreational needs. Students are responsible for managing their own group activities, thus gaining experience in community and social affairs and playing a role in shaping Institute policy. Students are represented on Institute decision-making bodies such as the Board of Trustees, trustee committees and the Student Judiciary.
The main functions of the Office of Student Involvement are:
- Advisement of Program Board
- Advisement of Inter-Greek Council
- Allocation and administration of funds collected through the student activities fee
- Community Service efforts
- Oversee the Student Union student programming space
- Programming of student involvement
