Division of Student Affairs and Campus Diversity
The Division facilitates the academic and career success, personal growth, and well-being of all students, and works proactively to address systemic inequities through professional learning, community building, advocacy, policy recommendations, and organizational structures. We aim to foster an affirming campus culture based on the core values of excellence, equity, diversity, belonging, and inclusion through:
Recruiting and retaining faculty and staff who are reflective of the diverse student body and communities served by SDSU, and recruiting students who are representative of the rich diversity of the region and the world;
Fostering an environment that is welcoming, affirming, and empowering for students, faculty, staff, and alumni of all backgrounds;
Enhancing the career and educational pathways of a diverse student body, the faculty, and staff, including enhancing the learning environment and expanding learning opportunities for all students inside and outside the classroom, and expanding and connecting opportunities for students to participate in transformational experiences;
Developing leaders who believe in and lead others toward supporting civility, mutual respect, and diversity in our society and workplaces; and
Cultivating relationships with the local community that advance the well-being of diverse individuals and communities.
The Well-being & Health Promotion Department aims to enhance the well-being of SDSU students in order for them to achieve academic success and establish lifelong healthy behaviors and attitudes to reduce the risk for disease and injury.
Well-being & Health Promotion believes that students' health is an integral part of their academic success. A student's success can be derailed by poor choices that affect health and safety. Often alcohol and other drugs, reckless or dangerous behavior, and risky sexual behavior can lead to injuries, disease, legal trouble, and social circumstances that make continued academic progress difficult or impossible. The department serves a preventative role to allow students to make more healthful and less risky decisions by:
1. Helping create a healthy campus and community environment.
2. Assuring students know-how and are motivated to make healthy decisions.
Well-being & Health Promotion provides SDSU students with tools to succeed by offering health education on women's health, contraception, STI education, nutrition education, alcohol, and other drugs education, medical referral assistance, and Peer Health Education for the campus community.
Well-being & Health Promotion maintains a commitment to collaborative and integrated efforts to achieve student health.
