Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management

The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management is a learner-centered division where our primary goal is student success.  We recruit and enroll students who will be successful here and help them learn about all the opportunities that exist on campus.  We support the growth and development of our students inside and outside of the classroom by providing programs, services and opportunities that actively engage students in our campus community. 

We are committed to our students and to the student experience at Oswego.  We seek out opportunities to hear the voice of our students and to serve as role models and advocates.  We believe in a holistic approach to student success and strive to create an environment where all students will flourish.

 Mission – Our mission is to enroll and engage students in a vibrant out-of-class learning environment that supports and fosters student success.

 Vision – The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management at SUNY Oswego will be recognized as an exemplary student-centered division by providing transformative student life experiences that will develop  talented, accomplished and confident students and help produce graduates who will engage with their professions and their communities to make a difference in the world.

 Values – The members of the Division of Students Affairs and Enrollment Management are committed to the values of:

  • Diversity and Inclusion   –  Diversity refers to the ways we differ, including those differences we were born with as well as those characteristics that make us unique.  Inclusion refers to bringing people together and benefiting from the collection of our perspectives and experiences.  Diversity and inclusion together create a community distinguished by respect, involvement, and connection where our individual ideas, backgrounds and perspectives are harnessed and valued.
  • Mutual Respect  –  Mutual respect is the foundation for honesty, trust, and meaningful communication and involves both individual and shared concern for ourselves and others.  Mutual respect accords dignity to different feelings, beliefs and values.
  • Community -   Community involves a set of interrelationships connecting students, faculty and staff who recognize and celebrate a shared vision, purpose and values.  These relationships create a sense of belonging and responsibility where caring, respect, justice and fairness are expected and embraced.
  • Responsibility  – We recognize the well-being and governance of our community are a shared responsibility.  Being responsible means that decisions are made by acknowledging the context and considering consequences, both intended and unintended, of any course of action.  A sense of responsibility requires careful reflection on one’s moral obligations to be thoughtful stewards of resources, accountable to ourselves, to each other, and to the community we serve.
  • Engagement –  Engagement refers to the energy and commitment that students dedicate to out-of-class activities that develop their knowledge, skills and competencies.  Engagement also refers to the energy and commitment provided by the College to foster student participation in those activities.
