We are very open and honest and we will respond in a timely and comprehensive manner. 

The draft mission and values for the Division are provided below for your information:

Mission Statement

Staff members within the Division of Student Affairs provide comprehensive programs and services in a collaborative manner that support the mission of the university; enhance the learning experience for students; foster the overall development of students; and value social justice and community as hallmarks.

Organizational Values 

  •  Student-Centered: We strive to be welcoming, fair, respectful, service-oriented, and ethical when interacting with students.  It is also our obligation to be “in-touch” with the student culture at the University. Finally, we are committed to serving as both role models and advocates for students.
  •  Social Justice: We strongly believe in the importance of the values and concepts associated with human understanding, social equity, globalization, and multiculturalism.
  •  Learning: We believe in the importance of the academic mission.  We also believe that students learn in a variety of ways and in a variety of settings.  To this end, we strive to support and collaborate with others in the delivery of programs and services that promote student learning.  We also strongly believe in the concept of student development and all that it encompasses.
  •  Collaboration: We recognize that we are part of a greater whole and not an entity unto ourselves.  Our willingness to collaborate positively serves both external constituencies and the university community.
  •  Engagement:We strive to be actively engaged in the University community through both formal service and informal means, including attendance at campus events and general visibility on campus
  • Innovation: We are committed to continually improving our programs and services consistent with current trends and issues, best practices, and evaluative feedback.  We also recognize the importance of effectively utilizing technology where appropriate.
  •  Team: A commitment to a team-oriented work environment is essential. Relationships are characterized by trust, respect, support, communication, cooperation, and friendliness.
  •  Community: It is our belief that the concept of community, as defined by Ernest Boyer, represents an important theme and structure in all that we do. It is also a concept that gives meaning to our mission, values, and operation.

Thank you for visiting our web site.
