The Office of Student Life delivers proactive and comprehensive programs and services aligned with current research, student trends, and the student life cycle.
Reporting to the Executive Director, Student Services, the Director, Office of Student Life develops, implements, and assesses a comprehensive student conduct and student life model.

The successful candidate will have demonstrated expertise in the areas of natural justice, equity and critical incident response. Additionally, the successful candidate will have a comprehensive and progressive understanding of the issues and trends related to young adult populations, including those populations traditionally under-represented/marginalized.
