Student Affairs


Student Affairs consists of a dedicated team of individuals who connect, support, educate, empower, and engage our students in life outside-of-the-classroom.  In support of the educational mission and lived values of the University, we provide opportunities and experiences that are essential to students’ overall college experience.  We are committed to serving students and take pride in our common goal of student success.  Throughout all the Student Affairs departments, you will find caring and supportive individuals who are dedicated to helping our Knights succeed.

Enjoy reviewing the departmental websites below, as well as the information on this homepage.  Please email me at with any questions, comments, or concerns.  You are also welcome to visit the Student Affairs Office located in Suite 202 of the University Commons.

We endeavor to support the student's physical and emotional self while in the pursuit of their education. We nurture students as they strive for independence by teaching self-care concepts and encouraging safe and thoughtful practices as health care consumers.
