Welcome and Philosophy
The Office of Student Affairs is committed to working with students, faculty and staff from all areas of the university to build an open, inclusive, intellectual and multicultural community. While our primary commitment is to students, we also develop and maintain partnerships with external constituents, such as the Gunnison Valley community, employers, alumni, parents and others. We contact students before they enter the university, stay in touch throughout their matriculation and continue beyond graduation.
The Student Affairs staff is friendly and helpful. You'll find support and assistance with your academic work and as you seek co-curricular activities. We urge you to further enrich your classroom experience by joining in one of the clubs or activities offered through the Student Government Association, Intramural Sports, Club Sports, Wilderness Pursuits, the Fitness Center or any of our other activities that interest you.
Programs and Services
The Office of Student Affairs exists to support to students, as well as their friends and family, in times of crisis. This may include referral for academic and personal problems, crisis outreach, response in case of student death or helping a student feel supported in the university environment. Our goal is to provide caring services to students in to assist them during times of need.
The programs offered through Campus Life give students the chance to join activities involving their academic, emotional, physical, spiritual or career-related development.
