About Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs is devoted to creating an integrated learning experience that helps students reach their educational, personal, and professional aspirations. We help create a campus community where students are prepared to contribute to a changing world.

To do this we:

  • Provide leadership and support for university-wide student affairs programs;
  • Support students in their development: intellectual, moral, ethical, social, cultural emotional and physical;
  • Challenge students to create a diverse community of mutual respect through cultural exploration and social interaction;
  • Promote the common good while listening to the individual voice, encouraging independent thought and interdependent actions;
  • Motivate students to contribute as leaders, team members, professionals, and world citizens through experiential learning opportunities;
  • Utilize Los Angeles and Southern California as an educational environment where learning has no boundaries;
  • Create local and global connections: academic, professional and personal;
  • Invent the future of student support services.
