Mary B. Coburn, Vice President for Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs (DSA) at Florida State University (FSU) is made up of

12 departments that collaborate to support and provide opportunities for student learning outside of the classroom. The focus of this report is on the area of University Housing and the impact it has on our residential students. FSU Residence Life, within University Housing, fosters the lifelong learning of every resident through the promotion of responsible citizenship, scholarship, appreciation of differences, personal wellness, and involvement. Each year, University Housing participates in the Association of College and University Housing Officers International/Educational Benchmarking Incorporated (ACUHO-I/EBI) Resident Assessment. In 2010, 2,688 residents (37% of total population of residents) responded to the evaluation.

FSU Highlights from the 2010 ACUHO-I/EBI Assessment • Overall Program Effectiveness for Full Residential Experience o #1 in our Select 6 benchmark group o #2 of 47 institutions within our Carnegie Classification • Residence Hall Programming o #1 in our Select 6 benchmark group o #3 of 47 institutions within our Carnegie Classification • Top Outcomes – Campus Housing enhanced students’ ability to: o Live cooperatively o Improve interpersonal relationships o Adjust to campus o Meet new friends o Resolve conflict

Mission The Division of Student Affairs collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create welcoming, supportive and challenging environments that maximize opportunities for student learning and success.

Student Affairs practitioners help, guide, support, teach, and challenge students throughout their collegiate experience. Residence Life provides a multitude of benefits for students who live on-campus. Several studies have shown that living on-campus is a positive factor in student involvement and retention (Astin, 1993; Pascarella & Terenzini, 1991; Tinto, 1993; Kuh, Kinzie, Schuh, Whitt, & Assoc., 2005).
