Student Life and Development


A Message from the Vice President

The office of Student Life and Development is committed to facilitating the success of our students in all aspects of their college experience. This includes being there for them in this confusing and difficult time as our community struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Our commitment to our students is as strong as ever, and we want to ensure that you have all the resources you need to succeed in your academics, and in life. This is an unprecedented situation and we are all in this together. Our staff members and student employees are working hard every day to ensure that everyone receives the answers and assistance they need at this time.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the school's operations surrounding COVID-19, please refer to the header on the Saint Cloud State University website. We are operating a hotline, as well as answering emails with any questions or issues that may arise. Your safety and success are our priority, and we are here for you!

Stay safe, healthy, and go Huskies!
