LETTER FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT Philanthropist W. Clement Stone wrote that “when you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire.” In that spirit, it gives me great pleasure to share the Campus Life Services 2012-2013 annual report. We have been on a mission this year to support and uphold our university’s core values in all of the services and programs we offer. We have worked tirelessly to foster the academic success of our students by providing efficient, student-focused services that allow students to worry less and do more. As part of the SMC Campus Center, an interprofessional hub, we have laid the foundations of a community that encourages students to build personal and professional relationships across disciplines. It is in this kind of learning environment that we can educate and develop students to their fullest potential, so that they are thriving not only in their academic pursuits, but also in their development as health, human services, and legal professionals. In this report you will find evidence of the work we have been doing. More importantly, however, you will also meet some of the students with whom we have had the privilege of working: Kaitlyn, who worked with Campus Life Services to plan campus-wide events; Kun, who collaborated with the President’s Student Leadership Institute to begin luncheon leadership seminars, open to students of all schools; and Javod, former President of the Muslim Student and Scholar Association, a campus-wide group. Their success stories are at the heart of our success story. As always, we look forward to the year ahead supporting our students in their academic, service, and professional pursuits. Sincerely, Flavius R. W. Lilly, MPH, MA Assistant Vice President Academic and Student Affairs
