Student Affairs


This year we are proud to focus our support on two critical student services: the Jamil Niner Student Pantry and the Student Emergency Fund.  

Our mission in Student Affairs is to advance the educational mission of the University by creating inclusive student-centered learning environments where students excel academically and develop personally into their best selves. Helping our students navigate financial and food insecurity are two of the many ways we demonstrate our commitment to student success.
