Division of Student Affairs Mission
Student Affairs is committed to guiding students as they develop the values of civility, respect and character, while also fostering self-awareness, global citizenship and social responsibility.  We seek to instill these values to enhance academic success and promote the growth of leaders through divisional programs, services, and individual mentoring.

Missouri Western’s Division of Student Affairs exists to support you–our student–as you discover their strengths and enhance your talents. While at Missouri Western, you will be provided the opportunity to learn about yourself, to explore different majors and career paths, and to discover your values and motivations–both inside and outside of the classroom. College is a time to broaden and deepen your knowledge in a wide range of subjects while developing critical thinking, conducting research, and enhancing writing skills. You will be exposed to technology, varying viewpoints, cultures, and concepts of globalization. Student Affairs is committed to guiding students as they develop the values of civility, respect and character, while also fostering self-awareness, global citizenship and social responsibility. We seek to instill these values to enhance academic success and promote the growth of leaders through divisional programs, services, and individual mentoring. Living in the residence halls will provide       opportunities for meeting a wide array of personalities, viewpoints and experiences – and teaches you how to navigate a diverse community. While higher education helps to create increased career opportunities, it is also a time for you to grow, by taking these new exposures and applying them to the foundation family members and prior experiences helped to build. If you embrace the opportunities, you will learn and grow here. Again, welcome to Missouri Western.  We are here to assist you–Go Griffs!
