The Division of Student Affairs exists to help students with every aspect of their lives at UC Berkeley. Our departments are translators and facilitators of the student experience, collaborators, and problem solvers.

Our Vision

The Division of Student Affairs will give every student a transformational experience that is unsurpassed in preparing them to transition into global citizens. One way we’ll do that is to make a big, public institution feel smaller and help students navigate through all aspects of the student experience. We advocate for and with students as they transition into, navigate through, and connect beyond their UC Berkeley experience.

Additionally, we aspire to create a culture of continual improvement and collaboration for our staff, pursue equity in compensation, and foster professional development and growth opportunities at all levels. We strive to be one of the best places to work in student affairs in the nation.

Strategic Plan

The Student Affairs Strategic Plan advances the people, services and programs that will help us achieve our vision.

Student Life Master Plan

The Student Life Master Plan will advance our physical spaces where we will gather in community and provide the services and programs that will help us achieve the vision. The plan will be a complement to the campus’ long range development plan to renovate, rebuild and create new spaces. More information to come soon.
