Student Affairs and Academic Support

Research, Scholarship and Community Impact

The Division of Student Affairs and Academic Support advances the mission of the university through student-centered efforts in three priority areas: student experience and post-graduate success; research, scholarship and community impact; and operational excellence.

Through deliberate collaboration and utilization of evidence-based decision making, the Division of Student Affairs and Academic Support is committed to the development of innovative initiatives/programs and an elevated collegiate experience that intentionally connects students, staff, and faculty to the community — the city of Columbia, state of South Carolina and beyond.  

  •  The division is committed to providing opportunities for staff to conduct research and advance knowledge and skills through leadership and engagement in higher education and student affairs within the university and at the regional and national level.  
  •  Our practice is grounded in developing scholar-practitioners who connect research to practice and practice to research.
