While the Division of Student Development has been restructured and no longer exists, UMA students may find these offices/departments to be of assistance as they explore and develop their potential.  These offices collaborate with faculty and other members of the University community to create a supportive learning environment, advocate for students, and provide the services and opportunities that facilitate:  a successful transition into college; an understanding of student rights, responsibilities, and privileges; intellectual and personal growth; the application of acquired knowledge to career development, personal effectiveness, and civic responsibilities; and, an appreciation for learning as a lifelong process.
