Consistent with the historical tripartite mission of the University, the Division for Student Affairs has a mission to administer a comprehensive range of student development services, activities, and programs that promote student learning and enhance the development of our students.
The Division has a strong tradition of providing services that are based on a student-centered philosophy, with the firm belief that student development services are an integral part of the total learning experience at Prairie View A&M University. All levels within the division are directed toward achieving productive results and continuous quality improvement at all times. As an ongoing, integrated, institution-wide process, “Excellence in service to students” provides the operational framework for this division.
Student Affairs: Vision & Goals
As a team, the division of Student Affairs works to be recognized as an exemplary administrative operation. Student Affairs programs are designed to help prepare students to become productive citizens of a global society and successfully transition from the academy to the world of work.
Prairie View A&M University students will be able to meet the challenges of a global society. Our vision for every student who enters the University remains:
The graduates of Prairie View A&M University will demonstrate intellectual sophistication, astuteness in acceptable value systems, a keen awareness and appreciation for integrity and morality and a high degree of personal, interpersonal and leadership skills.
The goals of the Division for Student Affairs are threefold:
- To protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of student records in a university environment that supports the intellectual, cultural, physical, social, and moral development of all students.
- To foster involvement in the learning community by offering co-curricula support services and activities which encourage a holistic approach to the development of students.
- To further the assurance that students know their rights and responsibilities as they matriculate in an environment that is relatively safe, secure, and healthy.
