The overarching purpose of the work done in Student Affairs is to increase opportunities for students to engage in intentional learning experiences, educate students on the value of living in a diverse, dynamic global community and encourage the personal and professional development of students. At times, it takes a multidisciplinary group of people to work together in support of a common goal and produce a larger impact than they could achieve as a single department. The cooperative work model allows us to be good stewards of available resources, increases innovation in programming and provides students with opportunities to be involved in the development of initiatives that impact fellow students.
