Trivia Questions
Student Affairs strives to educate, inspire, support, and lead all students to their highest levels of personal, academic and professional success. We work to develop a socially just environment emphasizing involvement, personal responsibility, integrity, mutual respect, civic engagement/leadership and engaged global citizenship. Student Affairs supports and contributes to creating and sustaining a diverse, multicultural, socially just and inclusive campus climate by learning about, recognizing and honoring the diverse backgrounds, histories, identities, and life experiences of all our students, faculty and staff. Social identities that have the potential to divide us are instead recognized and embraced, and may include but are not limited to race, gender, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, age, ability, religion and national origin. Our challenge is to create a campus in which all community members can thrive in an environment where they feel at home, welcome and safe.
The core values that define us as a division and guide our actions and decisions are a commitment to:
- Our actions are congruent with and reflective of our values, mission, and goals and consider the needs of all members of the CU community.
Student development and learning
- We encourage and support students’ personal, interpersonal and academic growth inside and outside the classroom, and model lifelong learning and personal and community development.
Social Justice -
We work to facilitate full and equal access and participation in all aspects of university life. We work to reduce bias and injustice, and to remove barriers that impede success and development.
Service excellence and innovation -
We improve service delivery in response to the needs of students’ multiple identities and developmental needs. We continuously seek new and creative ways to educate students and families about our services.
Mutual respect -
We honor and appreciate all members of the community. We hold students and other constituents in high regard and see the inherent worth in others while challenging behaviors and/or attitudes that are counter to these principles.
The Mission of the Division of Student Affairs is to empower student learning and success. We accomplish this by:

Providing quality student services and support
Promoting diversity and an inclusive campus climate
Modeling and developing outstanding leadership and civic engagement
Fostering intellectual growth and emotional and physical well-being
Encouraging involvement in campus, local, national, and global communities
Developing collaborative partnerships for academic and interpersonal success
