The Georgia Southern Division of Student Affairs strives to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of all of our students. Whether it is keeping them safe in unprecedented times, getting them involved on campus and in the community, taking care of their mental health, building their career readiness, or providing academic support, the Division of Student Affairs is built to prepare all of our students for success during and post-college.
Below are some of the highlights from our division from Fall 2020-Spring 2021, to give you a sense of what all we do, and the benefits in taking part in our programs and initiatives.

We’ve created a partnership with The Jed Foundation (JED) to help create a long-term strategic plan while implementing immediate actions and programs to support student mental health on campus.
The aim of JED Campus is to ensure that schools have comprehensive systems in place in order to prioritize student mental health and create positive systemic change in the campus community. JED provides a comprehensive public health approach in promoting emotional well-being and preventing suicide and serious substance abuse.
