Division of Student Affairs

University of Mississippi

Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Mississippi.  Currently, there are over 40 graduate assistant positions in our division that offer a wide range of experience from student engagement to administration.  Under the leadership of our Vice Chancellor, Dr. Brandi Hephner LaBanc, graduate assistantships are designed to give students working on a masters or terminal degree the skills needed to succeed in the field of higher education while incorporating student development theory, best practices, assessment, and research. Current graduate assistant positions are unavailable at this time as each position’s director is finalizing decisions.

The Division of Student Affairs hosted Graduate Assistant Recruiting Day on March 5th and 6th with over 15 positions represented. The recruiting event allowed admitted students to meet with all Student Affairs Directors, Senior Leadership, and Higher Education faculty at the university.  In addition, current graduate students were on hand to answer any and all questions about the program, life in Oxford, housing, and things to do.

If you have been accepted into the School of Education Higher Education and Student Personnel program and have not secured an assistantship but you are interested, please email Merrill Magruder at merrill@olemiss.edu.  Please note that graduate assistantships in the Division of Student Affairs are prioritized for higher education graduate students. Students enrolled in other colleges and school should reach out to their respective program coordinator first.

Save these dates on your calendar should you be admitted to the program and decide to enroll. If you have questions about graduate assistantships, please email Merrill Magruder  (merrill@olemiss.edu) or Devin Maffei (dmaffei@go.olemiss.edu). If you have questions about your application status please contact gradeducation@olemiss.edu.
