The Division of Student Affairs advocates for students and supports their development as citizen-leaders. Six core values guide the work of Student Affairs in serving both undergraduate and graduate students: academic rigor, honor, student self-governance, service, wellness, and diversity. In addition to the vice president’s office, the division includes the following units: Office of the Dean of Students, Student Health, the Career Center, and Office of African-American Affairs.

A gift to Student Affairs ensures that we have the resources to recruit diverse and talented students, to help them formulate and follow their dreams, to embrace student self-governance, and to make healthy, responsible decisions in their time at the University.
Student Affairs provides students with many opportunities to develop leadership skills. Students can take a leadership role within agency groups, special status groups, Contracted Independent Organizations, sports and recreational programs, and public service.
