The Division of Student Affairs enhances the learning environment for students. We accomplish this by stimulating the learning process, integrating in-class and out-of-class experiences, promoting an environment conducive to growth and discovery, and facilitating intellectual, spiritual, social, occupational, physical, cultural, and emotional development. 

As a means for facilitating learning for our students, the Division has identified specific areas, referred to as objectives, in which we seek to promote student growth and development through intentionally structured Student Affairs programs and services.
