The Division of Student Affairs wants to provide its members with resources to help them and their departments with strategic planning, setting personal goals, developing communication and promotional plans, and showing appreciation to their colleagues and campus partners for their efforts.


Strategic Planning & Goal Setting

Student Affairs Strategic Plan The Student Affairs strategic plan template outlines student learning as a primary outcome. The success of our goals depends on the simultaneous assessment and planning of our programs and services. Please use the Student Affairs strategic plan template to assess your efforts and measure how well your programs, services and initiatives meet the student learning outcomes of fostering global citizenship and cultural understanding, developing ethical leaders, promoting civic engagement and creating a culture of evidence.

Student Affairs Focus Areas How do you individually impact the mission of Student Affairs on a regular basis? Use the Student Affairs Focus Areas card to write down and commit to your goals to maximize student learning. These goals don't have to be part of your job duties; they can be something that you can easily do as an individual. Example: Talk about Student Affairs to a student or faculty member at least twice a month.



Student Affairs Style Guide The Student Affairs Communication Team has come together to develop a Student Affairs Style Guide to add as an addendum to the UA Style Guide. The guide will help build consistency across the Division. Please review the Style Guide when you have questions about design, grammar, word usage and to double check any graphics or written articles that represent the Division of Student Affairs.

Student Affairs Marketing & Promotion Resource Guide The Marketing & Promotion Resource Guide provides you with numerous ways to promote your events and services on campus. The Marketing & Promotion Resource Guide contains information about what tools are available, how to use the tools, what audience the tools will reach, and the cost of the tools. The Guide will be updated periodically, so please visit this section regularly to utilize the tools available to you to promote your events. Also utilize the Marketing & Promotion checklist and timeline as you are planning your promotional efforts.
