Programs and services will be delivered in ways rooted in the
recognition that students are the "primary customers"
of the University, in general, and of the Student Affairs and
Enrollment Management Division in particular. Therefore, the Division's
procedures, physical and staffing arrangements will be planned,
delivered, and arranged with the needs, interests, and concerns
of students as its primary customers. Also, the staff will be
