Sykes Student Union Mission Statement
Sykes Student Union is the center of community life on the campus of West Chester University. In support of the educational mission of the University, Sykes encourages and provides an environment where everyone on campus can gather to participate and learn through diversity and co-curricular experiences. Sykes provides services, conveniences, and facilities designed to support the needs of West Chester University and the community. The Union further strives to maintain a balance of recreational, social, educational and cultural programs and activities. Sykes Student Union promotes the development of the whole student by enhancing the classroom experience through experiential learning opportunities. This development is often accomplished through leadership opportunities, participatory decision-making, and empowerment connected with the operation of the facility.
Sykes Student Union was designed for all members of the campus community to come together for a variety of events. Sykes has four floors.
- The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) located on the second floor of Sykes Student Union is officially open and operational for student organizations. The CSI is designed to operate as an open and collaborative work/meeting space for all SGA recognized WCU student organizations. The space features a mix of tables, chairs and soft seating, three multi-person work stations, an 18 person conference room (available only to student organizations), storage lockers and seven student organization offices. The CSI houses the Student Government Association (SGA), Off Campus and Commuter Association (OCCA), Residence Hall Association (RHA), Fraternity and Sorority Life, Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA), the Multicultural Organization Advisory Board (MOAB), and Leadership Empowerment and Development (LEAD). The Leadership Consultants working in LEAD will serve as the CSI "managers" assisting the Sykes Union Student Directors with monitoring the use of the space and as a resource for students.
- New Entrance to Sykes Student Union is open and located on the ground floor - the East side of the parking lot.
