Student Affairs supports student development, both personal and professional; creates out-of-classroom educational opportunities; and contributes to a safe and inclusive campus community.
For the foreseeable future, the majority of our Student Affairs services will be carried out virtually, with some exceptions. Please know that although you will not be able to have in-person contact with some of our service areas, you will have access via phone, text, and Zoom with key personnel in these areas daily Monday–Friday, 8:00 am–5:00 pm. See information for each service area.
