Remote Instruction - SA Department Status Updates

Staying Connected with Student Affairs

Student Affairs is more committed than ever to its vision of being Engaged in Every Student's Success. All of our units will continually evaluate how they can provide dedicated service to students in innovative ways, so that we can continue to reach students both in person (where appropriate) and online throughout this period of remote instruction.

We have created three main avenues for students to identify and connect with Student Affairs resources this quarter. Please check back often. We will update information as conditions change, procedures evolve, and we leverage new technologies to improve the student experience. 

This Student Affairs Website

This page shows program and service availability throughout the Division of Student Affairs, and shares the easiest ways to get in touch with each of our units. Our goal is to provide a snapshot of all that is available to you, and how to get in touch, in a single page.
