Student Development Programs & Services
The Student Affairs Office performs in a supportive role and within a wide range of student related functions. The Student Affairs Office leads, directs, and administers overall functions of Student Clubs and Organizations.
The following are some of the specific services and responsibilities of the office:
- Administrative Advisory role to the SSG, and Student Organizations.
- Facilitate student complaints and grievances in compliance with procedures for conflict resolution.
- Promote a "Quality of Campus Life" for students.
- Facilitate communication and understanding of perspectives among the faculty, staff, students, and community.

Within the first two weeks after classes have officially begun, the Student Affairs Office conducts an Orientation Convocation for every College. This helps new students to be familiar with the philosophy, vision, mission of the school, the institutional rules, policies and regulations, the school facilities, the administrators, faculty and staff, school activities, clubs and organizations, career guidance, student services, and other information. To augment the general orientation, personnel from the Guidance Center and Library hold smaller classroom interaction dealing with more specific matters.
