Student Affairs

Welcome, Retrievers! Whether you are a UMBC student, parent/family, staff, or faculty member, if you need support or assistance, Student Affairs staff are committed to helping you.

We are passionate about fostering a campus community where students are valued, engaged, healthy, and safe. In all that we do, we work collaboratively and advocate for diversity and inclusive excellence in our community. Our Division creates a wide range of resources and opportunities to help our students feel a sense of belonging and be prepared for success at UMBC and beyond. We greatly value collaboration with faculty and staff on programs and resources to support our students.

Vice President for Student Affairs office staff are working both in-person and virtually, so please call or email to set up an appointment of your choice, and visit departmental websites for additional information.
