Parent & Family Programs

Parent & Family Programs supports the transition and academic success of students by partnering with their families. This office serves as the communication link between the University and parents.

Student Care and Well-Being

This department provides assistance and case management for students in crisis, along with outreach to those students' parents and families. SCWB coordinates a range of services to assist students with issues and concerns that may interfere with their academic success.

Veteran and Military Affairs

Veteran and Military Affairs facilitates and coordinates programs and services to meet the special needs of veterans, service members, dependents, and survivors in order to ease their transition to college life and fulfill their educational goals.

Student Conduct

Student Conduct seeks to maximize each UA student’s learning experience by educating students about the Student Code of Conduct, as well as the Capstone Creed. When necessary, the office also serves as the main campus entity to work with students to resolve disciplinary matters.

Women and Gender Resource Center

The WGRC addresses gender inequity and fosters a community of multiculturalism, social justice, safety, and leadership through gender-related outreach and advocacy. The WGRC provides counseling and advocacy services to members of the UA community who are victims/survivors of interpersonal violence.
