The Division of Student Affairs is the administrative unit of the university that is responsible for providing leadership and coordination of programs and services designed to support student learning and development in and outside the classroom.
In partnership with UW faculty, staff, and students, the Division of Student Affairs orchestrates the enrollment management departments of the University to recruit and retain a student body of the size and diversity appropriate to the needs of the state, the demands of the world of work, and the resources of the institution. The division also develops and delivers services, programs, and facilities that promote the intellectual, personal, cultural, and civic development of students; coordinates efforts to create a caring community in which individuals are respected, encouraged to pursue excellence, and achieve their potential; and fosters honoring the diversity of individuals and cultures.
There are three service clusters within the Division of Student Affairs which include Enrollment Management; Health and Wellness; and Community Building. The Enrollment Management cluster consists of the Admissions Office; Center for Advising and Career Services; Office of the Registrar; Student Educational Opportunity which includes University Disability Support Services; and Office of Student Financial Aid. The Health and Wellness cluster includes Campus Recreation; the Dean of Students Office which includes Multicultural Affairs; Student Health Service; and the University Counseling Center which includes the university's drug and alcohol education program. The Community Building cluster consists of Residence Life, Dining Services, and the Wyoming Union. The Associated Students of the University of Wyoming (ASUW) is also a part of the Division of Student Affairs and is an essential component of the support services structure designed to help students succeed.
