Mission, Vision and Values
Student Affairs Campus Compact
This is Our Anthem
Developed through an inclusive, division-wide process, the Campus Compact and the Anthem are important documents that shaped the division and its values. These documents detail how the division contributes to the success of students and serve as the foundation for the organizational values outlined in the draft of the 2016–2020 Strategic Plan.
Student Affairs Leadership Team
The Student Affairs Leadership Team previously served as the primary strategic planning body for the Division of Student Affairs, developing the division-level mission, vision, goals and priorities to foster excellence in students’ intellectual, social, cultural and physical development. The Student Affairs Education Forum, the current cross-divisional meeting structure, is an inclusive, learning-based model that seeks to advance our effectiveness as educators. SAEF serves as a think tank for key issues brought forward by Vice Provost Susie Brubaker-Cole and other leadership, and creates opportunities for individuals to connect and collaborate with colleagues.
2010-2013 Student Affairs Strategic Planning
Under the leadership of Larry Roper, who previously served as the vice provost for student affairs, the division developed seven initiatives between 2010 and 2013 to advance enrollment and retention; student learning, leadership and development; facilities and infrastructure; budgets and financial resources; communications and marketing; and assessment and research.
Under the leadership of Vice Provost Susie Brubaker-Cole, faculty and staff in the Division of Student Affairs focused on five initiatives between 2014 and 2016. These initiatives — Human Justice and Diversity, First-Year Experience, Student Care, Experiential Learning and Career Development — were identified as important elements to student success at Oregon State University. Each initiative aimed for inclusive excellence, including attention to international, graduate and transfer students; scalability to reach a broad portion of students on campus; measurability to demonstrate achievements and identify areas of improvement; and collaboration among departments within the division and beyond.
