WKU Student Affairs: Vision and Goals

Student Affairs Vision and Goals

 

Vision

At the core of all we do is a commitment to promote student learning. Our goal is to produce students who are intentional learners who can adapt to new environments, integrate knowledge from different sources, and continue learning throughout their lives. We strive to encourage students to embrace learning, to respect and celebrate diversity, and to learn how to effectively live in a global community. To this end, the Division will purposefully engage students in experiences that educate the whole student, promote transformative learning, provide opportunities for growth, and facilitate the development of leadership skills that enable students to contribute dynamic and responsible service to their communities.

The Division of Student Affairs is committed to the following values:
