Mission, Vision and Values


The Florida State University Division of Student Affairs empowers and supports all students to achieve their full potential.


We believe in the power of the student experience to develop graduates who positively impact the world.


To support learning and success, we uphold our values of:

Community: Our work exists through relationships of trust and mutual respect that create a sense of belonging. We cultivate community through a connected, collective network. We collaborate with the FSU community to shape a supportive and safe environment.

Student Development: We prioritize the development of the whole person so that everyone realizes their full potential. We educate and provide experiences for lifelong learning through engagement with staff members, programs, services, and facilities.

Inclusivity: Honoring the intersectionality of all people, we create inviting spaces to learn from each other and build more complex ways of being. We value and advocate for an equitable campus community.

Well-Being: We create campus environments that promote wellness as a foundation of a productive and positive experience. We respect each other and hold one another accountable for practices that help our community thrive.
