Our 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.
