About Us

Greetings from all of us in the Student Life Division!  Every day we engage with students to support them in meeting their academic and personal goals, beginning with new student orientation and reaching past graduation to dialogue with alumni.  The links on these pages will introduce you to our staff and to the wide variety of programs and services we offer for students and their families. 

In Student Life, we care deeply about love of learning, ethical and caring behavior, respect for difference, and serving the public good.  These are the values that guide our work; these are the values we strive to imbed in our student culture.   We have high expectations for our students and for ourselves; we work in partnership with students and faculty to insure that students’ out-of-class experience is as rich as their experience in the classroom. 

This is a vital, exciting campus in a beautiful setting. Pioneer Pride is alive and well!

-- Patricia Helton, Associate Provost
