The Division of Student Affairs
is a collection of departments, programs, and services that seek to foster URI students' personal development and directly contribute to their success as learners both in and out of the classroom. More than that, Student Affairs is a network of people who strive to assist, support, and engage our students in areas like campus living and dining, health and wellness, multicultural and diversity programs, career planning, student activities and organizations, recreation and athletics, conflict resolution, leadership development, and commuter student programs. We are the folks who bake the delicious dining hall desserts, coach our terrific varsity sports, plan the big campus events, help you nurse that nasty cold, stock the URI Bookstore with great clothing, put your picture on a URI ID card, provide a listening ear, and deliver so many other student support services and programs. We believe that a civil, inclusive, and engaged campus community enhances the total student experience, and we strive to cultivate that type of campus environment in all that we do. As a result of our student interactions and involvement, we hope each will come away saying, "You cared. You helped. I was inspired to succeed."
Welcome to all URI students! The Student Affairs staff wish you great success and fulfillment during the academic year!
