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.
