We focus on the recurring processes of Student Affairs. We oversee the planning and logistics of new and returning student arrival and move-in, storage, housing placement/selection processes, room key distribution, and more.

Also, our Community Safety Team collaborates with students and staff to improve the social wellbeing of the student community via deliberate planning, cross-campus communication, and effective exercise of personal and collective responsibility. Please see the links below for contact information and to meet out team members.
