Student Affairs Programming Philosophy:
Guided by the philosophy, “Students First,” we seek to create and provide programs based upon five essential themes: Culture & Diversity, Service & Engagement, Social, Academic & Professional, and Wellness. Students will have opportunities to grow as individuals who exhibit social responsibility and awareness, an appreciation for diverse communities, and a desire to pursue lifelong learning and development.
Through collaborative efforts, both internal and external, we will develop programming designed to meet the needs of students. Programs will be assessed on an on-going basis in order to continuously improve our ability to enrich the whole student.
