The many offices under the Vice President for Student Affairs provide students with a web of support and opportunity outside the classroom.  

Student Affairs supports and challenges students as they expand learning beyond the classroom, develop their personal and professional understanding and skills, and achieve the success they seek at Penn State and in their lives beyond. These opportunities deeply enrich the Penn State student experience and elevate the value of a Penn State degree. We also encourage a safe and healthy living and learning environment, in which students can explore endless interests, find their niche within the large and diverse Penn State community, and form lasting relationships.


Penn State Student Affairs facilitates holistic student success through purposeful advocacy, education, engagement, and support.
