The University of Florida Division of Student Affairs is pleased to share A Year in Review: Helping Students Be Successful, the 2002 -2003 academic
year annual report. Because of the various challenges related to closing out fiscal year budgets in our diverse departments, 2002 2003 data is the last
complete data available for reporting purposes.

In 2002 2003, Student Affairs staff coordinated thousands of programs and services based on three guiding principles: Student Development,
Environment, and Learning. Example programs that support these guiding principles are described in these sections. The Department Snapshots section
includes summarized annual reports from each of the Division of Student Affairs departments that help quantify and qualify the variety of programs and
services offered. While variations in programmatic efforts are evident when reviewing these sections, the overriding theme is Helping Students Be Successful.

The Division of Student Affairs is proud of its efforts to support the mission of the University. A key component of this success is the willingness of Student
Affairs staff to seek out and to forge partnerships with other academic and support units to ensure that UF students receive a well-rounded educational experience
that will prepare them to be tomorrow's leaders. Out-of-classroom educational and personal growth and development opportunities are abundant on this campus.
We look forward to building on existing partnerships and to initiating new partnerships.

The 2002 2003 academic year marked the beginning of a two-year leadership transition for the Division of Student Affairs. I was appointed Interim
Vice President for Student Affairs as a result of the untimely death of Dr. Jim Scott in February 2003. President Charles Young announced his retirement,
which triggered a national search for a president during Summer 2003. J. Bernard Machen became president in October 2003. At this time, a national search
is being conducted for the position of Vice President for Student Affairs.

In the coming months as the search for a permanent Vice President unfolds, we will continue to provide quality services and programs to our students.
The senior leadership staff has used this transition period to begin a five-year strategic planning process. Aware that changes in leadership will impact this plan,
the senior leadership team views the strategic plan as a dynamic working document that provides the foundation for our continued successes and serves to help
unite us toward a shared vision for the future.

Examples of Programs That Support Student Development

Student Development encompasses

promoting students' intellectual, social,

career, and personal development

through programs, services, and

leadership opportunities as well as

involves students in the campus decision

making processes that impact student

life. Division of Student Affairs staff

engages students deliberately through

structured activities, interpersonal

relationships, and awards and recognition

to promote a sense of support and

acceptance on campus. Both group

and individual counseling services are

provided to students to assist them in

integrating their personal experiences

and academic learning.

The University of Florida Student Government (SG) represents
and acts in the interests of UF students. SG offices are housed in
the J. Wayne Reitz Union, and Dean of Students staff advises SG.
Many leadership opportunities for students are available each year
through SG's three branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.
SG student leaders work closely with Student Affairs staff to
provide opportunities for students to gain leadership skills and
experience while providing services focused on student life.

The faculty of the Counseling Center provides direct support to
student development by offering individual and group counseling
services to students. In addition, they serve a significant role as
consultants to faculty, staff and student groups to assist them
with issues that can interfere with successful matriculation at UF

Elected and appointed student leadership positions are available
through affiliation with Greek life organizations. The Dean of
Students Office oversees Greek life on campus, which includes
54 fraternity and sorority organizations in the Panhellenic Council
(PC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic
Council (NPHC), and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC).

The Inter-Residence Hall Association (IHRA) and the Mayor's
Council offer campus-wide student leadership opportunities to
students living in campus facilities. Opportunities to be elected
floor or section representatives to an Area Government or
Council in individual residence facilities are also offered.

Department of Housing and Residence Education staff advises
residence hall and Village Communities affiliated organizations.

resource and referral service to ensure the success of University of
Florida student organizations. IDEAL is supported and advised by the
Office of Student Activities staff in the J. Wayne Reitz Union.

Leadership Institutes, in both on and off campus venues, bring
students together to enhance leadership experiences and develop skills
in supportive environments. Programs like the Women's Leadership
Conference (WLC) and Art of Leadership are examples of leadership
programs designed by Division of Student Affairs staff to bring students
together in a conference/workshop format for interaction and training.

The Office of Community Service is part of the Office of

between UF, local nonprofit agencies, and local government agencies.

Education, are also engaged in service learning activities.

Students participate in the Florida Alternative Breaks (FAB) program
advised by the Office of Student Activities in the J. Wayne Reitz
Union. The mission of this program is to provide opportunities
for students, faculty, and staff to immerse themselves in intensive
community service experiences outside of the local community in
an effort to heighten social awareness, advocate lifelong social action,
and build friendships in an alcohol and drug-free environment.

Dean of Students with assistance from Department of Housing and
Residence Education staff administer the Judicial Affairs process on
campus. The judicial process is designed to promote individual and
social responsibility. Alleged violations of the Student Code of
Conduct are addressed through procedures established to insure
fundamental fairness and provide an educational experience for all
participants. Staff involved in the judicial process assist students with
decision-making skills and conflict resolution. Issues related to
personal integrity, respect for others, and accepting responsibility and
consequences for one's actions are integral features of the judicial
process. Student Affairs staff is actively engaged in consultation with
faculty and staff to assist with disruptive student behavior.

Examples of Programs That Support Environment and a Sense of Community

The concept of environment

encompasses both a sense of

community felt by members of

the community as well as physical

facilities and green space on

campus. Students learn best

when they are provided with

facilities that provide healthy,

supportive, inclusive environments

that offer opportunities for

leadership, personal growth,

learning, and social interaction.

New Student Programs including Preview freshmen
orientation and transfer student orientation as well as the
Weeks of Welcome (WOW!) coordinated from the
Dean of Students Office welcome new students to the

Assembly, the Gay Student Assembly, and the Students

forces with the Division of Student Affairs in this effort is
the Division of Recreational Sports, which offers
extended hours at the Southwest Rec Center.

international perspectives and multiculturalism through
providing a living/learning environment for exchange
students and UF students.

_ All Division of Student Affairs departments support the Examples of Programs That Enhance Learning

Student learning is a cumulative

process that occurs over an extended

period of time in many different

settings. Students learn from many

and varied experiences and the better

the balance between curricular and

co-curricular activities, the more

students gain. The Division of

Student Affairs bridges the boundaries

between inside and outside class

activities of students through

forging collaborative partnerships

with faculty and others to enhance

student learning.
