The Division of Student Affairs

In choosing to attend Providence College, our students recognize the value of a liberal arts education within the Catholic, Dominican tradition; commitment to academic excellence, the pursuit of truth, growth in virtue, and service to God and others.

Guided by our Catholic and Dominican values and in support of the Providence College mission, the Division of Student Affairs strives to guide and support students while at PC, and to prepare them well for their lives after graduation. Education is a pathway towards our students’ futures and vocations, and while the classroom develops our students’ hearts and minds in the pursuit of academic excellence and truth, our division helps students understand who they are and who they are called to be.

Our Offices

As a primarily undergraduate and residential college, student life at Providence College is intrinsically woven into the fabric of the PC experience. The Division of Student Affairs plays a dynamic role in our students’ journey towards a life of meaning and purpose. Guided by the Office of the VPSA/DOS, Student Affairs is comprised of the Chirico Career Center; Community Standards; the Dean of Students Office; the Center for Orientation, Transitions & Leadership; the Parent & Family Program; the Personal Counseling Center; Public Safety; Recreational Sports; Residence Life & Housing; Student Activities, Involvement & Leadership (SAIL); and the Student Health Center.
