Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs

Welcome Tommies!‌

I am thrilled that you are a part of our community at the University of St. Thomas.  In support of the broader mission of the university, the staff in the Division of Student Affairs are fully committed to ensuring that you thrive during your time here, and beyond as Tommies for life.  
Our staff work diligently to ensure that the environments, programs, and opportunities you have here enhance your learning and engage you both within and outside of the classroom.  We offer exciting opportunities such as clubs and organizations and student-led programming. We provide support resources for career and personal development. We assist in your needs when living on or off campus.  The Division of Student Affairs does all of this, and so much more.
More than anything however, we are committed to showing care for and support of each and every student.  This idea of “St. Thomas Cares” is the bedrock of our work and central to how we engage with students.  Our conviction of personal attention guides us: your story matters; your experience matters; you matter.  We will support you on your journey here at St. Thomas.
We want you to feel comfortable at St. Thomas to explore and grow academically and personally.  We know that you will succeed here.  Take advantage of everything St. Thomas has to offer, inside the classroom and out, and know that we are here for you.
