Student Services

Student Services Offices

Student Services promotes and facilitates student learning by supporting our students with co-curricular services and support that will allow students to engage in the total college experience. The offices that provide student services include:

Through engagement and involvement with these programs, services and activities, students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and personal life skills. They receive services that will provide learning opportunities outside the classroom in addition to those in the classroom. Many of our student services departments are lead by members of the Student Affairs Leadership Team (SALT).
