The Office of Student Life (OSL) is grounded in the development and maintenance of student programs that provide opportunities for academic, personal and professional growth through leadership activities, internships, orientation, counseling, wellness programs, career exploration and athletics. At the same time, OSL strives to increase awareness about institutional policies and procedures. Participating students acquire the skills they need to work independently and in groups, where they benefit from an exchange of ideas in a richly diverse environment. Students are encouraged to interact with each other, faculty, staff and members of the local community. In addition, OSL is responsible for generating a comprehensive calendar of events; processing student inquiries, complaints, judicial proceedings and notifications; and serving as an administrative agent for the Academic Standards Committee in the Academic Appeal review process. This unit also ensures that at-risk students are advised, receive an academic plan of assistance and are registered.
