The Division of Student Affairs makes critical contributions to the accomplishment of each University Learning Outcome and takes primary leadership for students' psychosocial learning, health and wellness, and personal development.
As they participate in residential living and a broad range of co-curricular activities, students live what they learn and learn as they live. Student Affairs provides transformative activities that integrate academic learning with co-curricular experiences.
Student Affairs is a leader and partner in programs that sustain and enrich campus life.
Student Affairs teaches and guides pre-college and current students as they personalize, reinforce, and extend learning by applying in their own lives what they have learned in the classroom -- moving beyond awareness and understanding to application, performance, synthesis, and integration. Living, learning, studying, and growing in a mosaic of peers, staff, faculty and community members, students use the rich educational opportunities found outside the classroom to broaden their range of experience, strengthen interpersonal skills, and build and experience community.
As active members of BGSU’s premier learning community, students come to appreciate diversity in its broadest sense as they work to clarify their own values and deal with issues of autonomy and interdependence. Student Affairs supports personal growth in such areas as career preparation, leadership, effective citizenship, and successful engagement with others.
