Division of Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs coordinates programs, facilities, resources and support compatible with Harvey Mudd College’s academic mission to enhance students’ learning and growth.

Our staff is responsible for residential life, student activities, club advising, leadership training, and volunteering and community service. Along with close collaboration with other student services of The Claremont Colleges, we also oversee the College’s recreation and fitness facilities, career services, personal counseling and referrals, leaves of absence, accommodations for students with disabilities, new student orientation and commencement.
