Student Affairs staff serve as a primary source of information and advice about co-curricular opportunities and university resources, such as the Student Food Pantry. We educate students and the university community about university-wide policies and administer the Student Code of Conduct. We provide violence prevention training, mediate disputes and help students put classroom learning into practice. You may contact our office for assistance if you are experiencing difficulties adjusting to college life or if you just need someone to talk to. Staff members will work with you to help evaluate your situation and refer you to the people who can properly assist you.
