To empower students so they can navigate life, experience fulfillment, and contribute to humanity. 

To advance the student success agenda, we will:

  • Provide safe, comfortable, affordable, and physically and programmatically appealing housing and dining programs to students living on campus;
  • Provide integrated wellness service to address physical and behavioral health;
  • Educate students; encourage personal accountability for their choices and actions; refer students to appropriate resource on and off-campus; 
  • Engage students in leadership opportunities; social justice activities; provide educational, social, and entertaining programs and events;
  • Foster opportunities for students to provide feedback to the university and participate in shared governance;
  • Provide alumni and parents opportunities to be active in the UW Community.


The Division of Student Affairs is committed to leading and supporting efforts to create an inclusive and robust educational and supportive environment surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion. We recognize that our campus and community deserve a welcoming space where people from all backgrounds should be seen, supported, and recognized.

The Division of Student Affairs is comprised of the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming, Campus Recreation, the Dean of Students Office, Student Health Service, the University Counseling Center, Residence Life, the UW Alumni Association, and the Student Success Hub.


Our values represent beliefs and principles that drive the culture and priorities of the Division of Student Affairs and provide the crucial framework under which decisions are made.

Student Development

Creating services, environments, and programs that develop students along intellectual, cognitive, social, moral, and identity dimensions.

Personal and Social Responsibility 

Educating students to strive for excellence, cultivate personal and academic integrity, contribute to a larger community, take seriously the perspectives of others and develop competence in ethical and moral reasoning and action.

Holistic Wellness

Cognitive, cultural, emotional, environmental, financial, physical, social, and spiritual wellness is the prerequisite for student success.


A diverse and international community that includes and respects different ethnicities, genders, sexualities, abilities, cultures, and world-views multiplies our capacity to advance student success.


An engaged student body cares about the community, fully participates in the life of the university, connects classroom content to real-life situations, and integrates learning into their understanding of the world around them. Engaged students perform better academically and persist to graduation.
