What We Do

The Office of Student Engagement & Leadership creates, promotes, and supports opportunities that inspire students to become connected, empowered, and engaged members of the F&M community.

Event Planning 101
As student leaders, you have committed to an important role that will help to make F&M a great place to live and learn. This information has been developed to assist you in effectively and efficiently leading your organizations. It outlines College policies and procedures and contains helpful information to guide student organizations through all aspects of budgeting, fundraising, and event planning.
The Ampersand: Event Central for F&M
Welcome to The Ampersand! We use a tool called Campus Groups to register events and make sure they appear on the college calendar so you can see what is happening all across the F&M campus.


Looking to Market Your Event?
We have a fully stocked resource room of materials for you to market and set up your event, including poster supplies, tablecloths, cups, plates — even balloons!
Fundraising Policies
Wondering how you to go about raising funds to support your club or group or an external organization? We have you covered.
Diplomatic Congress
As the central student government of Franklin & Marshall College, the Diplomatic Congress unites student leaders from all facets of the community with the common purpose of promoting a diverse and engaging campus culture and improving all aspects of the student experience.
Resources for Advisors
Are you a member of the faculty or professional staff who is interested in serving as a club advisor? This volunteer opportunity is open to all full-time employees at F&M.
