The philosophy of Student Affairs is to support and enrich student learning experiences and help shape student success by empowering students for life and work in a global community.

We Believe In:

  • Placing an emphasis on the student's personal and academic growth by applying the core outcomes of the institution; communication, critical thinking, global awareness/diversity; civic responsibility; personal and professional accountability; aesthetic response.
  • Promoting an environment for learning that provides a wide variety of out-of-class learning opportunities, work and leadership experiences, information, advice and counsel that meet student needs and expectations.
  • Embracing the diversity of individual backgrounds and experiences in a global community.
  • Applying Student Affairs and learning theories which incorporate the intellectual, psychological, physical growth and wellness of students.
  • Student responsibility and accountability for their own behaviors and decisions with resulting consequences.
