The Division of Student Affairs is responsible for that part of the student’s total educational experience which takes place outside the formal classroom program. Among its concerns are student center, student activities, student health, recreation, student organizations, programs, disciplinary actions, disabled student services, multicultural student affairs, counseling and testing services, housing and dining, university police, and veterans affairs. Through such activities as the Student Government Association, the students are given a responsible voice in the governance of the University.
(See Student Handbook, The Lowdown https://www.southalabama.edu/lowdown/).
Students also participate as members of some University-wide committees as well as on committees within the colleges of the University.
