The Division of Student Affairs provides services for students based on the ideal that learning occurs beyond the classroom. Offices in this division challenge and support students by providing co-curricular and extra-curricular programs and activities that are linked to the University’s Roman Catholic tradition and core mission: transforming hearts and minds to serve the world.

By providing opportunities that focus on the education of the whole person, the Division of Student Affairs invites students to enter into experiences that will promote growth in faith, the development and formation of character, and an attitude that embraces lifelong learning and service to the community.

Members of the Student Affairs staff encourage responsible decision making, physical and emotional wellness, respect for all members of the Rivier community and beyond, and an appreciation of diversity. This is strengthened through collaboration and cooperation with academic affairs and other campus student services.

Student Affairs includes the following departments:
