About Student Affairs at UNE

The Division of Student Affairs is a team of professionals that supports UNE’s diverse community of learners. We take a student-centered approach to promote whole-person well-being, an inclusive and equitable community environment, professional preparedness, and lifelong learning.

The Whole, Well Student

At UNE, we value the whole student, including mental, emotional, physical, and academic wellness. The role of the Division of Student Affairs is to provide opportunities, resources, and effective strategies to support your health, happiness, and success as a member of UNE’s learning community. As a fully equipped Nor’easter student, you will be able to thrive on campus, in and out of the classroom.
