Student Affairs

Our mission

The Division of Student Affairs' primary concern is the student. This concern encompasses retention, welfare, and growth and development in all dimensions of student life including educational, vocational, social-cultural, civility and tolerance, psychological, values clarification and physical.  The Division's goals are best defined by the following:

  • Providing students the opportunity to set and achieve personal goals consistent with their capacities;

  • Providing students the opportunity to develop effective vocational and professional competencies moving toward post-baccalaureate and graduate experiences;

  • Assisting students in preparing for participation as responsible members of local, regional, national and international communities; and

  • Developing students' co-curricular and academic partnerships through residential colleges and other experiences.

You have my very best wishes for your success.

Dr. Don Robertson, Vice President
Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management
