Our Commitment to Student Success
In Student Affairs, we are committed to your success, and our work is guided by what we believe is critical to helping you achieve your educational objectives. While we focus on co-curricular learning and out-of-classroom experiences, we are committed to the development of students in all areas of academic, cognitive, interpersonal/ intrapersonal, and professional/ applied competence.
Our vision, mission, and values reflect this commitment to student success.

Our 2010-2015 Strategic Plan articulates our goals, outcomes, and strategic initiatives for the Division of Student Affairs. We have specifically outlined what we believe students will learn and develop during their college experiences.
Through co-curricular, experiential learning opportunities, students will demonstrate knowledge, skills, and competencies in the areas of civic engagement and social responsibility; critical thinking skills; global competence and leadership; interpersonal/ intrapersonal competence and effective communication; professional/ applied knowledge and competence; practical competence, and life skills; physical, socio-emotional, and spiritual well-being; and self-identity, self-confidence, and self-esteem.
