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.

Established in 1977, Student Legal Services (SLS) is a small law office at CU-Boulder dedicated exclusively to serving the legal needs of students.

SLS has several attorneys on staff who can help students make sense of their legal situations, explain their options and/or help them prevent their legal issues from getting out of control.
