The Division of Student Affairs engages, supports and develops University of Miami students as active citizens within our diverse and global society.


We provide students with a foundation for educational excellence for their time at the university and beyond. With high-impact programs, supportive services and first-class facilities our goal is to advocate for students to pursue their academic, professional and personal interests to the best of their ability.

Our student-centered approach to higher education emphasizes leadership development, student involvement, residential and commuter student life, service learning, wellbeing and recreation. The 14+ individual units of the Division of Student Affairs work together to provide students with experiential opportunities to challenge ideas, collaborate with others and apply their skills to make a difference.
