Message from the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Welcome Home! On behalf of the staff in the Division of Student Affairs, we are excited to have you in the Braves family. As the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, I have the privilege of leading a talented and dedicated staff committed to our mission of fostering student success.
We are excited that you joined our family and we look forward to assisting you in pursuing your academic and personal goals.
The Division of Student Affairs works with faculty and staff throughout the campus community to build and create an exceptional out of class experience for you that complements your academic curriculum. We will challenge you to embrace differences and adapt to change, think critically, communicate effectively, and become responsible citizens. In short, we will provide a comprehensive, integrated student experience which embraces learning, personal and social responsibility, leadership development, healthy lifestyles, and the appreciation of diverse ideas, cultures, and people. Although UNC Pembroke prepares you for life and leadership within a diverse society, we are also here to serve you, as well as your family, and members of the greater university community.
We are committed to providing you a phenomenal campus experience in a highly personalized and student-centered environment. However, we need your assistance by becoming engaged in campus life. I challenge and encourage you to take advantage of everything that UNC Pembroke offers. Get involved in the many campus activities and intercollegiate athletic events. Take advantage of the plethora of student organizations, theater and the arts, and the service learning opportunities. What will your legacy be? How will you integrate yourself into the campus experience? How will you engage the campus community and make you and the campus better? We expect you to immerse yourself into the curriculum and co-curriculum experiences and become an active member of the Braves family.
The Division of Student Affairs includes Housing and Residence Life, Student Health Services, Student Involvement and Leadership, Counseling and Psychological Services, the Career Center, the Chavis University Center, Diversity and Inclusion, Greek Life, Community and Civic Engagement, Intramurals and Campus Recreation, Student Conduct, Campus Safety and Emergency Operations and Parents and Family Services.

Again, I welcome you to the Braves family!
