Student Services

The Mission of the Student Affairs Division is to provide student services and programming from a caring, inclusive, and student-centered perspective that support and enhance holistic learning within the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy.  Our goal is to empower students to strive to reach their full potential in development of the whole person while
supporting their academic and occupational success.

Our dedicated professionals are ready to be of service in many ways, with special emphasis on career development, personal counseling, student leadership, health records, campus ministry, and multiple activities and clubs.
