Mission, Vision, Values


The Division of Student Affairs collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create welcoming, supportive and challenging environments that maximize opportunities for student learning and success. Through high quality programs and services, the Division staff facilitates student development, celebrates differences, and promotes civic and global responsibility.


We envision a Florida State University where students, faculty and staff embrace an inclusive learning community with respect, responsibility and acceptance for all cultures. Graduates will make meaningful contributions to a global society through character, competence and integrity. They will make ethical decisions and be committed to a life of service and leadership.


We value a University community where the tenets of the Seminole Creed are essential to the development of strength (Vires), skill (Artes) and character (Mores). We are committed to providing a caring environment which promotes sustained achievement, and fosters learning and the holistic development of students, faculty and staff.
