Student Involvement



College is about discovering new interests, meeting new people, and building life-long relationships. Whether it’s joining (or starting) a new club, exploring off-campus, educating yourself on a new topic, or connecting with the Denver arts community, there are infinite ways to get involved!

Designed to Inspire + Educate

Join or start a club today to find lasting friendships and a deeper connection with the art and design community in Denver!


Peer Mentoring, Community Building, + Civic Engagement

The Student Ambassadors serve as peer mentors to new students, plan events for the entire student body, and organize projects that give back to our community. Applications open in the Spring semester each year.

Also Known As The SLA

If you’re an active member of the RMCAD community, you can develop your leadership skills by joining The SLA. Gain practical experience, develop your professional skills, and prepare for life after college by working closely with RMCAD staff and faculty, the Student Life Office, and the Student Body.


Give Back to Those In Need

By partnering with local organizations and nonprofits, the Civic Engagement Program at RMCAD gives students the opportunity to apply academic knowledge, diversify skill sets, collaborate with larger entities, and build meaningful connections that will last long after graduation.

RMCAD Sidequest

Every term, students have the opportunity for additional learning outside of the classroom. We call these opportunities “Sidequests.” A term commonly used in gaming, sidequests are additional adventures that allow our students to gain resources alongside their primary journey. Look for these badges to signal that you are on a Sidequest for more learning.
