Student Affairs - Dean's Office

Division of Student Affairs

Mission Statement

Wesleyan seeks to build a diverse and energetic community of students, faculty, and staff who think critically and creatively, and who value independence of mind and generosity of spirit.  The Division of Student Affairs partners with students and collaborates with other members of the Wesleyan community to realize these goals and to cultivate a campus environment conducive to student learning and development.

The professional and student staff of the Division of Student Affairs provides and facilitates co-curricular and campus life experiences that support students’ educational and developmental goals; complement and extend students’ learning beyond formal academic settings; foster a campus environment where students think critically, participate in constructive dialogue and engage in meaningful contemplation; build awareness, respect, and appreciation for a diversity of experiences, interests, beliefs, and identities; and facilitate student leadership development, the practical application of leadership skills, and effective citizenship.
