Welcome from the Vice President
The quality of university life is often one of the most significant factors that determines whether students will complete their courses of study. Enrollment Management & Student Affairs seeks to enhance students' experiences at Portland State University by establishing a vital co-curricular program and providing support services that help students attain their personal and academic goals.
Enrollment Management & Student Affairs supports PSU students throughout the continuum of their student experience. Beginning with admission and enrollment, continuing with support services and learning opportunities that enhance academic progress and personal growth, and culminating with the search for employment upon graduation, the division facilitates a student's journey through the university and beyond. Throughout the student journey we are committed to enhancing academic and career success, encouraging engagement within the University learning community and community at large, supporting the develop of diverse and global perspectives, and promoting healthy living practices.
Each department has the overall development of students as its goal. By offering students opportunities to strengthen academic skills, develop social and leadership skills, and enhance career development, we assist them in accepting responsibility for their personal growth and in realizing their educational goals.
This web site is designed to provide a ready reference guide should you have questions or need to refer students or other interested parties to one of our offices. I hope you find it to be a useful tool.
