What We Do
As highly experienced professionals, we are proud of what we do — and how we do it. Every day, we are fortunate to see the results of our work reflected in the faces of our students.
“What’s next?” This is the question that drives us each day, as we strive to provide the new experiences, programs and resources that will meet the ever-changing needs of our diverse student body.
As part of his regular contribution to the Student Life E-Connect Newsletter, Scott Weber shares his insights into recent events and news within the division.
The highly specialized departments within Student Life work together to share insights, build on best practices and provide an expansive array of student-focused services. Additional assistance comes from administrative support units that offer critical resources.
