About Student Affairs

Welcome! The Division for Student Affairs provides many programs and services designed to complement life outside of the classroom, promote student success, and encourage personal and professional development.

The Division supports the University's mission to lead the educational, economic, and cultural development of southeast Louisiana.  We serve as important resources for the recruitment of quality students, aid student retention by actively overseeing important services and co-curricular and extra-curricular programs, contribute to a sense of identity and loyalty for the institution, and create an environment that is safe, friendly, supportive, and caring.  

At the core of our success is a committed staff that believes in students. They want you to succeed in school, graduate, and find a job. Students who get involved in at least one out-of-class activity are more likely to be successful at Southeastern. Connect with any of the areas within Student Affairs so that you are involved, informed, and invested in your future.
