Welcome from the Vice President

The mission of the Division of Academic Engagement and Student Affairs is to provide coordinated academic support services and high-impact learning opportunities that promote academic success, professional development, and civic engagement. Whether you need help selecting classes, setting goals or creating strong study habits, or considering career choices, we are here for you.

As Argos, we value the unique characteristics that each individual brings to our campus and community. As a campus community, we continually strive for inclusive excellence. The Office of Equity and Diversity works diligently to sustain a welcoming and inclusive environment across campus. We also offer programming and training to support the development of your cross-cultural skills as you prepare to work in a diverse and global environment.

Social engagement is an important part of your university experience. Whether you want to start or join a club or organization, be part of a living learning community or attend campus-sponsored activities and events, we can help you find your niche.

While COVID-19 has posed some interesting challenges for all of us, I assure you that at UWF, our dedication to student success has not wavered. Whether you join us virtually, in hybrid format, or face-to-face, the Division of Academic Engagement and Student Affairs will continue to be here for you.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kim M. LeDuff
Vice President for the Division of Academic Engagement and Student Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer
