Division Initiatives


Diversity, equity and excellence are core values of the Division of Student Affairs educational mission. We strive to prepare students for the realities of living and thriving in an increasingly diverse global society by integrating in and out-of-classroom learning experiences and helping students become better leaders and citizens.


The Student Affairs Sustainability Committee leads our Division's sustainability efforts with staff on the committee serving as sustainability coordinators in their own departments.

Student Affairs uses our Green Guide to highlight sustainability expectations for all staff in the division. It also maintains a Sustainability Plan containing sustainability standards for all Student Affairs departments.

We are supportive of the Office of Sustainability's Green Office Program and are proud that the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs is a certified silver office.


All Student Affairs employees have multiple roles, priorities, and challenges – as staff members, as partners, as parents, as children, and/or as members of communities.

The Division's Work-Life initiative promotes healthy work environments which are on the fore-front of work-life integration practices to ensure that Student Affairs has a staff-friendly work culture.
