Growth and Evolution

Departmental Changes

Student Affairs continues to grow and evolve in order to better serve our students. During the past year, significant changes within the division included:

The new Calpulli Center, which houses three distinct Student Affairs departments, opened at the beginning of the 2006/2007 academic year. All three departments were able to expand services with additional space and resources thanks to this move.

In Student Disability Services (SDS), the new Test Accommodation Center provided more than 3,500 accommodated tests.

Student Health Services (SHS) increased student appointments by 14 percent in fall 2006.

Counseling & Psychological Services also increased the number of students it was able to serve and its various workshops and groups.

Student Activities and Campus Life (SACL) – The former Centers for Student Involvement was revamped with a new name that better describes its streamlined focus. The three main components of SACL are: Student Organizations, Fraternity and Sorority Life, and the newly named Civic Learning and Community Engagement, formerly the Center for Community Based Service-Learning.

STAR stands for Students Taking Academic Responsibility, and they each provide an academic resource center for all residence hall students. The centers help create a positive, academically oriented environment to help residence hall students achieve academic success. Some resources offered include areas for study, research resources, course books, computers with Internet access and much, much more.

The Cross-Cultural Center is now part of the newly named Office of Intercultural Relations/Cross-Cultural Center. This office will serve and coordinate a variety of intercultural opportunities. In 2006, the division sponsored the inaugural Southern California Student African American Brotherhood Conference in San Diego. More than 200 students throughout the region attended the conference.
