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.

Mental Wellness Screening Days
March 10 – 11.
Interested in a quick mental health check-up? Worried about a friend? Curious about counseling options at UVA? A recent survey reported 59% of UVA students felt overwhelming anxiety at least once in the past year; 37% reported they felt so depressed it was difficult to function at least once in the past year. UVA CAPS is here to help and is excited to offer free, 20-minute virtual mental health screenings.
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.
