Division of Student Life

The mission of the Division of Student Life (DSL) is to educate the whole student by providing learning experiences and opportunities grounded in social justice designed to prepare students to be engaged citizens in our global community. Our mission is in collaboration with and in service to the academic mission of Mills College. Our vision, mission statement, and core values assert our commitment to the student experience.

The staff of the Division of Student Life with the leadership of the Dean of Student Life is dedicated to assisting students in becoming forces of positive change in the campus community and in society. DSL is committed to engaging students in practical applications of the critical pedagogy they learn in the classroom as they become agents of social change, by experientially developing their skills and abilities and becoming aware of and cultivating their strengths.

Through active participation in diverse co-curricular opportunities and services offered through the Division of Student Life, students become engaged in campus life and enhance their learning, exploration, and sense of community.
