The Student Life Experience
One of our Student Life strategic plan goal areas is about the "Student Life Experience." It's our way of expressing that we hope that all who come in contact with our services and programs - students, faculty, staff, community, etc. - have a great experience and that their interactions with us help them be successful. Come join Vice Chancellor Erwin for a conversation about what the "Student Life Experience" means across the division and the diverse array of departments and programs.
