Priorities

The Division of Student Life has three priority areas: Health & Safety, Multiculturalism, and Student Leadership Development. These are critical areas of student development that the Division’s departments are uniquely positioned to support. In each of these areas, our staff members lead campus-wide, collaborative initiatives that are guided by assessment to measure outcomes and progress. We are national leaders in several areas, such as high-impact student employment, anti-violence work, and harm reduction. Our priority work is a critical component of meeting our mission.
