STUDENT AFFAIRS MISSION STATEMENT
Student Affairs staff members are focused on fostering learning environments that engage our students and empower them to develop strong leadership skills, inside and outside of the classroom. We are committed to providing well balanced programs and to supporting opportunities for the personal, social, recreational, spiritual, cultural and civic development of our students, to become actively engaged within the campus community and beyond. We value and care for our students and their rights, and embrace diversity by cultivating inclusiveness and enthusiastically engage them in ways to inspire and mentor them.
The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) holds the key to enhancing your college experience. It is the one-stop center for activity on campus. Numerous campus-wide events/activities, are develped by the OSA, which add to the out-of-class experience on campus. The OSA oversees the two SU buildings, where you will find the Student Computer Lab (SU-28), the Success, Equity, Advocacy, Leadership (SEAL) Center rooms (SU-19), the Diversity Center (SU-204), the Student Activities Office (SU-202) and the offices of the Associated Student Government (SU-102 & 104). Leadership training and workshops are offered throughout the year, enabling students to become outstanding leaders.
As students, you have the opportunity to step forward and become active in a club/organization. This can develop your leadership skills, expand your budgeting skills, enhance management abilities, and allow you to participate in campus-wide decisions. But more than that, you will have the opportunity to foster friendships in a diverse environment.
In addition most student grievances and disciplinary actions generate from the Office Of Student Affairs. If you have a problem on campus, other than a grade dispute, stop by the OSA for information towards a solution. A completely different avenue must be taken if your problem involves a grade dispute. You may come into the OSA (SU 201) for directions.
Check out the “What Can I do..” page on this site for quick insights to some common questions asked by students. For more information, you may stop by the OSA any time we are open. Remember to SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING ON CAMPUS, JUST DROP BY THE OFFICE OF STUDENT AFFAIRS – SU 201.
