Welcome from Robert Flowers, Vice President for Student Affairs

Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs at Hobart and William Smith Colleges! My colleagues and I are dedicated to developing programs that capture learning opportunities outside of the classroom and complement the academic experience. Our staff works to enrich the student experience by providing co-curricular learning, athletic and social opportunities that support the core missions of the Colleges and the mission of the division.

As a division, we concentrate on five strategic initiatives to augment students' meaningful interactions outside of the classroom. These interactions are centered on co-curricular learning, health and safety, and leadership development. We believe that active engagement in each of these areas is a crucial component of the Hobart and William Smith liberal arts experience.

On our site you will find a wealth of information for students, parents, faculty, and staff. I encourage you to browse the departments, programs, and opportunities that the Division of Student Affairs offers and familiarize yourself with the wide range of resources available to you.

The Division of Student Affairs empowers students to become self-reflective world citizens by providing co-curricular learning opportunities to enhance student growth, skill development, and personal wellness. We foster an inclusive, diverse community in which students develop a commitment to service as they grow to a deeper understanding of the relationship between self and others.
