About the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs
The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs assists in resolving a variety of personal, medical, and other issues that may affect a student’s academic performance and daily life on campus.
Student Affairs is committed to providing a safe and healthy campus environment for students to enhance their ability to fully engage with the total educational experience at CCSU. Many co-curricular learning opportunities, programs, services, and activities are offered to assist students in their personal and social development.
The Office of the Vice President provides leadership to the departments within the Division, serves as a resource for questions regarding University policies and procedures, and makes referrals to other offices for more information or problem resolution. We assist students in resolving a variety of personal, medical, and other issues that may affect their academic performance and daily life on campus. Also, we handle absence notices for students who have appropriate documentation and work with Student Disability Services to facilitate medical absences and accommodations.
In collaboration with the Learning Center, Student Affairs is actively involved with the Early Alert, formerly known as Early Academic Warning, program, the goal of which is to intervene with students who have poor grades, attendance issues, or personal issues that may be affecting their academic progress. Poor academic performance and/or attendance issues are often symptomatic of other problems students may have. If we can meet with, and help students before the first exam of the semester, they have a better chance of achieving academic success.
