Student Affairs Departments

Departments within the Division of Student Affairs offer students a variety of educational programs, support services, leadership opportunities, and experiential learning opportunities each year. The Division of Student Affairs is comprised of the following departments and offices.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion


In support of the University Diversity Statement, the Division of Student Affairs believes that we have an obligation to create an inclusive environment that embraces social justice and acknowledges diversity as more than the presence of human difference(s). As a campus, we must establish our community as one which empowers students, faculty, and staff.

An inclusive environment:

is one in which each individual feels that they matter to the community (as a whole).

Social justice:

is an ongoing and collaborative process which addresses the multiple levels of inequality in our society.


Created by Western’s Hamersly Library, this guide highlights resources at WOU and beyond on race, policing, and protest. As we learn and unlearn, and commit to antiracist work, we encourage you to not only further your understanding of racial justice, but be an active agent in action-oriented solutions that address systemic racism.

SACI (Student Affairs Committee on Inclusion):

SACI is dedicated to the advancement of inclusion, social justice, and equity within the Division of Student Affairs.

UDIAC (University, Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee):

The University Diversity and Inclusion Advisory  Committee (UDIAC) is a presidential advisory committee charged with receiving, developing, and submitting recommendations related to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion across the University enterprise.
