University Life Leadership

University Life (UL) supports the academic and personal development of students. In addition to providing direct support services (psychological, health, disability, etc.), our work is also centered on student engagement and sense of belonging, creating a welcoming and inclusive campus environment, service to specific student populations, career and internship services, all with the goal that students will learn, thrive, and succeed here.

More than 450 dedicated and experienced professional staff members work in the division with the common goal of ensuring the success of Mason’s students. University Life staff bring a depth and breadth of expertise to their roles benefiting students and the university community. Staff members frequently make presentations at conferences of their professional organizations and strive to follow the standards for the student affairs professions set out by the Council for Advancement of Standards in Higher Education.
