Mission

The Division of Student Affairs advocates for student success and empowers students to grow as professionals, as well as individuals, by providing a wide range of support services. We work with students across all five schools and colleges to explore ways to enhance the entire student experience and to develop solutions to issues and concerns, both individual and collective. With a Students First approach, the office serves as the student mentor, advocate and voice from the admissions process to matriculation to graduation.
