The Division of Student Affairs at Roanoke College provides support, services and programs to enhance student learning within the residential liberal arts community. Our focus is on the individual student and their experiential education. We seek to provide life- changing learning experiences that link the academic, co-curricular and residential experience in ways that embody the "Freedom with Purpose" vision.

The Division of Student Affairs assists students in their intellectual, ethical, spiritual and personal development by providing living and learning opportunities that contribute to the educational mission of Roanoke College. These educational opportunities enhance traditional classroom learning and prepare students for success in life after graduation, while encouraging them to become leaders in their community as well as global citizens.
