DSA Partnerships with Students and the Academy (DSA PSAs)
The classroom provides a platform for these important conversations with faculty and students.
Classrooms and faculty meetings provide a space and platform for important conversations with students and colleagues. The Division of Student Affairs Partnerships with Students & the Academy (DSA PSA) initiative offers opportunities for you to request a presentation where student affairs leaders will share expertise, promote programs and services, and/or deliver tailored presentations to meet your informational and/or instructional needs.
The Division of Student Affairs advances student development and engages students for a lifetime of learning and discovery. Whether you want us to partner with you during a meeting, or your class, or if you would like us to take over; invite student affairs educators into your meeting or classroom. We offer presentations on a variety of topics including student leadership & engagement, health & wellness, student crisis & support services, student equity programs and possible academic partnerships. Each session can be structured as a 30 minute introduction or a 1 hour orientation. We value our collaboration with campus partners across campus. Please let us know how we can best support your work with students and colleagues. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Finding Your Pack: Campus Life and Students Involvement
|Office of Student Engagement||
The Division of Student Affairs works to assist in creating a malleable and responsive learning environment that aligns with the academic mission and recognizes the importance of engagement both inside and outside of the classroom. This session will highlight resources and support that assists students to graduation.
|Health and Wellness: Resources to Support the Pack||Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)||Student Affairs departments offer a variety of health and wellness programs and services that provide students with tools and resources that assist them in meeting their academic and personal goals. These units within the Division of Student Affairs partner frequently to assist students experiencing challenges to their success, such as a personal crisis, health issues, or financial concerns that may create barriers. These departments also provide ongoing support services and important prevention programs to promote individual success and well-being. All departments and programs work within a framework of equity that recognize and honor students’ lived experiences and respond to their needs while also providing consultation and support to faculty and staff as they promote student success.|
|Student Success and Educational Equity: Eliminating the Gap||Services to Students with Disabilities (SSD)*||Student Affairs fills a major role in responding to the external demands on students and in helping design the best learning environment for students. To participate fully in this endeavor, the Division of Student Affairs is composed of units directly designed to assist student populations who are first generation, and low income, or who have been historically marginalized within the higher educational system at large. These equity-focused units provide academic advising, case management, peer mentorship, success workshops, and other educational programming to support the needs of students with a particular equity focused lens.|
|The Power of the Village: Engaging and Supporting Students to Graduation||Department of Housing and Residential Education (DHRE)||Sometimes the academic journey can seem to be a lonely one. Students, faculty, and staff often inquire what resources or programs are available to engage students and increase their sense of belonging and connection to the University. This session will highlight the DSA units that work together as a village to encourage student involvement and engagement and the connection between involvement and graduation.|
|DSA, What’s that?||The Division of Student Affairs consists of more than 25 departments dedicated to enriching the student experience by providing programs, learning opportunities, and support services that help students get the most out of their college experience. Through a holistic approach focused on student leadership & engagement, health & wellness, and student success & educational equity, we ensure students develop a sense of belonging and community of support during their time at CSUSB. We are committed to creating an integrated learning experience that helps students reach their educational, personal, and professional aspirations. This session will provide an overview of the Division of Student Affairs and all of the resources and supports available to students through our diverse range of programs and services.|
|PDC Pack||The Division of Student Affairs actively supports our PDC Pack. Students have access to services at both campuses, but these areas have dedicated staff or student workers to support the success of our students. Various departments collaborate to provide ongoing resources and programs designed to help students feel a sense of belonging to CSUSB.|
