The Division of Student Affairs at The University of Southern Mississippi exists to provide fundamental services to students that remove barriers and create conditions that maximize opportunities for students and faculty to engage in scholarship together; and second, to foster environments, activities, programs and even cultures that facilitate student growth, development and learning outside the classroom.

At our best, the Division helps provide what notable educator Ernest Boyer called a “seamless education” in which students learn not only in the classroom, libraries and labs, but also by being fully engaged and responsible members of a mission-driven, intentional learning community. We encourage you as students, parents, faculty, staff and friends to utilize our services and engage with our programming.
