    Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs! We are a team of highly competent and professional educators that are committed to enhancing the out-of-class experience for students at The University of Mississippi. From your first campus tour to graduation day, you will find Student Affairs partnering with you to become better acclimated to campus, to find a safe place to live, to keep you healthy while attending classes, and to build leadership and career-specific skills. We work hard to support the co-curricular, emotional, physical and financial needs of our students.

    While students attend college to pursue an academic major and attain a degree, a great deal of learning occurs beyond the classroom walls. Those of us in Student Affairs are here to assist students with this important educational aspect of their college career. We invite students and families to get involved because the more invested you become with the Ole Miss culture; the more successful you are likely to be academically.

    This website intends to introduce you to the ways you can connect and become involved with Student Affairs. Please review our materials closely and let us know how we can facilitate your engagement or assist you with any questions or issues. We look forward to working with you!

    Warm Regards,
    Brandi Hephner LaBanc, Ed.D.
    Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
