Our mission is to promote academic and personal success. Within the university and the communities we serve, we partner to provide student-centered programs and services, valuing student learning, diversity and responsible citizenship.
Student Affairs supports nine offices that promote academics, cultural diversity, student development, campus recreation, as well as student organizations.
Student Affairs houses eight offices that provide services to enhance the academic experience of junior high, high school, college and returning adult students. Offering learning assistance and education to provide students with the skills they need to succeed.
Relying heavily on the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education’s (CAS
) Frameworks for Assessing Learning and Development Outcomes (FALDO
) (Stayhorn, 2006) and the revised CAS Learning and Development Outcomes (CAS, 2008), our framework of student learning and development domains was created to be a resource for practitioners within Enrollment Management & Student Affairs (EMSA). More specifically, the framework serves as an organized description of desired outcomes of our collective work, provides a common language for our efforts, is useful for developing program objectives and related assessments, and is linked to theory that guides our practice. Furthermore, our articulation of a common set of learning and development outcomes for EMSA provides the division with a tool to guide strategic planning efforts and professional development of staff. Importantly, such a tool also enables staff to clearly communicate the benefits of involvement in EMSA to students themselves.
