Mission Statement
The Division of Enrollment Management & Student Affairs values and supports the unique, transformative educational experience of the University of the Arts. We support students' total educational experience: their admission and transitions into and out of the University, their creative process and their professional lives. We advocate for and provide a holistic approach to every student with programs and services that foster their intellectual, physical, social and emotional well-being. We are committed to the values of integrity, diversity, community, collaboration and inclusiveness.
