Mission Statement

The Office of Student Affairs is a central provider of resources and experiences designed to supplement students’ classroom learning and to contribute significantly to their personal development.  Through our programs, advising resources and services, and various forms of advocacy, OSA supports students in their growth as leaders and builders of a strong Penn community.

The Office of Student Affairs, a department within the Division of University Life, serves as a primary source of information and advice about co-curricular opportunities and resources. Staff members assist students in becoming involved in campus life, conduct leadership development programs, provide continuity for organizations from year to year, manage organizational finances, coordinate Family Weekend, educate students about University policies, mediate organizational and individual disputes, advise special programs and activities and student government, manage Locust Walk space, and help students put classroom learning into practice through the techniques of experiential education. A full list of OSA offerings are listed on the side bar on this page, or you can feel free to contact us to find out more!
