The Division of Student Affairs’ primary focus is to create a positive learning environment that fosters successful educational and personal development of all students, both in and outside of the traditional classroom. Student learning and success is enhanced when the academic environment and community support students’ full development as individuals—not just as isolated intellects—and when students are seen as important partners in the learning experience. For a complete listing of services offered, visit the student affairs website.
