Student Affairs supports the teaching, research, and public service missions of the University of California, San Diego, by providing critical services, developmental activities, and experiences for the matriculation, academic achievement, personal development, and quality of life for all UCSD students.
Through both college-based and campuswide services and programs, Student Affairs fosters the intellectual, social, ethical, and personal development of students, preparing students to become engaged and constructive members of a diverse, dynamic, and global society.
Student Affairs has 5 strategic goal areas, which directly guide the administration and operations of Student Affairs:
To prepare, attract, and enroll students of the highest capability who represent the diversity of the people of California.
To facilitate the wellness, retention, intellectual growth, and graduation of all students.
To build a welcoming, engaging, safe, and inclusive community that creates a sense of belonging for all students.
To provide experiences that foster self-discovery and develop the personal, academic, and professional skills and relationships needed for a successful transition into diverse and global communities.
To engage students, parents and family members, alumni, and UC San Diego and external community members in experiences that ignite a sense of pride, ownership, and personal investment in the ongoing success of the university.
