The 21 departments that constitute Student Affairs are committed to student success
and institutional excellence through close attention to student learning and data-driven
operational practices that are aligned with the University’s vision and mission.
The departments work to capture innovation at the point of practice in all areas ranging
from facilities planning and maintenance to development of learning experiences outside
the classroom, from development of employment and internship opportunities to provision
of health and wellness services and facilities, and the promotion of community safety
Over the past ten years, Student Affairs has grown to make use of best practices with
major strides in the following areas: 1) Infrastructure, 2) Services, 3) Processes,
and 4) Learning Outcomes –all of which build on a culture of assessment and continuous
improvement to guide Divisional
planning and resource allocation.
As advocates for our students, each of the departments within the Division of Student
Affairs is responsible for supporting the co-curricular and developmental needs of
the student body and for developing policies, programs and services consistent with
the campus mission of providing a positive campus life experience for each student.
Additionally, members of the Student Affairs Division interact with a wide range of
individuals and groups including SUNY system executives, legislators, business and
community leaders, faculty, students and parents. Additionally, the Office of the
Vice President for Student Affairs serves as an advisor to the President, and the
Division participates in the overall administration of the University with representation
on the President's Cabinet.
