Conversations about mental health and well-being
The Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs oversees the fourteen departments and offices that comprise the Division of Student Affairs. The division provides essential leadership for the out-of-classroom education of students, the co-curriculum which complements and supplements the academic areas, and the various services necessary for successful retention and graduation. Units within the division have an annual operating budget of $30 million; and staff of approximately 125 academic and non-academic faculty, 350 classified and 1,000 student employees. The division goals are consistent with the institutional goals and aims, support and assist the instructional program, contribute to each student's total development, and alleviate conditions which can interfere with a student's education.
The Division of Student Affairs supports the "voice" of every student. In pursuit of the values expressed in our Campus Compact, we commit to vigorously pursue the development of a purposeful, open, just, disciplined, caring, and celebrative community on the Oregon State University campus.
