The primary goal of the Student Affairs Department is to know and understand students and to address student learning and living needs. Through direct student contact, staff members engage with, challenge and support students on their journey toward graduation.

The department is responsible for new student orientation, campus activities and involvement, campus safety, citizenship education, community service, counseling and health services, campus emergency response team (CERT), campus safety, family/parent communications, out-of-state student services, chaplain resources, senior celebration planning, Greek clubs, leadership and mentor programs, diversity and inclusion, residence life and commuter services, persistence and retention initiatives, student event planning, Student Senate, and Welcome Center services.

Additional Student Affairs information and policies can be found in the Student Handbook.
