  • Financial Aid
  • International Student's Needs

  • Student Activities
  • Food Service
  • The Campus Environment

According to the Bylaws

Membership of the Student Affairs Committee will be open to all students with Presidential appointment but must include all Senators representing students living Off-Campus, or within Residential Life managed properties.

The Student Affairs Coordinator shall be the chair of the committee and shall coordinate the election of a committee secretary to record meeting minutes. The Coordinator will be expected to report these minutes during Presidential Cabinet meetings.

The Student Affairs Committee will meet weekly throughout the academic year. During a meeting scheduled, once a month, by the Student Affairs Coordinator, the chair of each, non-academic, Student Affairs related committee (listed above) will report on their committee actions. If a committee chair cannot attend the Student Affairs Committee meeting, scheduled for their committee report, they must appoint a designee to attend in their place.

The Student Affairs Committee will work on student service related policy review.
