Division Vision Statement

The Division of Student Affairs is committed to a shared responsibility for transformative student learning that fully supports students in their pursuit of their educational and career goals. The philosophical approach is grounded in the seminal text, Learning Reconsidered 2, a student affairs, peer reviewed document adapted internationally as the standard for the profession. Student learning occurs as they connect social, academic and through institutional contexts. Through intentional education, students are exposed to cognitive thinking, global awareness, interpersonal communication and intrapersonal well-being. The Division of Student Affairs views all student interactions as an opportunity for growth and development by encouraging and creating opportunities to partner with students as they navigate their educational goals.

Division Assessment Plan

In alignment with the Division Mission and Vision statement, each unit within the Division of Student Affairs has developed area specific goals with outcomes which are measured using annual assessment plans. The Division of Student Affairs also conducts unit reviews on a seven year cycle to holistically review the goals, outcomes and assessments. All assessments and unit reviews align to the Comprehensive Assessment Plan for Institutional Effectiveness (CAPIE) and are included as part of the Administrative Educational Support (AES) units
