Division of Student Affairs UAP Presentation February 6, 2008
Student Affairs Mission Statement The mission of the Division of Student Affairs at Ferris State University is to promote, support, and complement the academic mission of the institution by working collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to create and extend student services and student learning opportunities outside the classroom. April, 1999
Intentionality “I have become more interested in recent years in the concept of institutional intentionality. That is, what does the institution intend? What is it trying to do? Institutions are not simple collections of faculty, like a colony of coral…all simply doing their own thing. Once, universities were described as organized anarchy. But that won’t do in this new age of expectation and accountability. Public institutions must fulfill public purposes, and you can contribute to the development of purpose, and to the execution of that purpose. You are part of an institution’s intent.” From: http://www.aascu.org/grcino/SO5/s05Presentations/Tuesday/1200/mehaffy.pdfhttp://www.aascu.org/grcino/SO5/s05Presentations/Tuesday/1200/mehaffy.pdf George Mehaffy is Vice President of the American Association of State Colleges & Universities.
