About Us

As strategic educators with an integral role in implementing the university’s mission, the Division of Student Affairs provides high-quality, inclusive programs, initiatives, and services that facilitate engaging and purposeful co-curricular student experiences that contribute to holistic student development and success.

To these ends, I, as a member of the staff of the Office of Student Affairs, am committed to the following:

I will act in the best interest of the student, where that interest does not go counter to the best interest of the student body or of the university.

I will act fairly with every student, student group, co-worker and member of my professional community, and the larger community, regardless of my personal feelings and relationships.

I will act expeditiously on matters requiring prompt consideration and communicate the decision to those who need to know in a timely manner.

I will consult with those most likely to be affected by my decisions, prior to making the decisions.

I will periodically review the practices and policies of my functional area for fairness, efficiency and effectiveness, always striving to improve programs, services and results.

I will maintain awareness of current best professional practices and incorporate those practices into the operations of my program or service area.

I will accept responsibility for my decisions and professional actions.

I will respect the letter and the spirit of confidentiality required by law, professional practice and institutional/departmental policy in my dealings with all constituencies.

I will respect professional standards which guide me in relationships with students, faculty, staff and the general community.

I will advocate respect for individuality and promote an appreciation of human diversity by demonstrating the principles of inclusion of all persons in activities, programs and services.
