Vision & Mission


The Division of Student Affairs will be an integral part of equipping students with the skills, confidence and experience to be engaged campus citizens and effective leaders who will make a positive impact on the global community.


The Division of Student Affairs partners with members of the University community to prepare students for success.

We provide students with innovative programs, services and facilities that enhance and support their academic experience and prepare them to meet lifelong intellectual, ethical, personal and career challenges. By engaging with the Division, students develop their communication, interpersonal and leadership skills in a university setting that is inclusive and culturally rich. This supportive and encouraging environment allows students to build learning skills, cultivate a global perspective, prioritize balance in their lives and develop a commitment to campus and community engagement. We are dedicated to student success and embrace the University’s mission of providing access and excellence to our students.
