Standards

As a team, the Office of Student Affairs works to in still excellence, pride, and self-love into all students we serve. The programs within Student Affairs are designed to help prepare students to become productive citizens in a global society and successfully transition from the College to global ambassadors for America and the Global Community.

The goals of the Office of Student Affairs are threefold:

  1. To protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of student records in an educational environment that supports the intellectual, cultural, physical, social and moral development of all the students.
  2. To foster involvement in the learning community by offering co-curricular support services and activities that encourage a holistic approach to the development of the students.
  3. To further the assurance that students know their rights and responsibilities as they matriculate in an environment that is safe, secure, and healthy.

The Office of Student Affairs consists of the areas of Student Activities, Student Government Association, Residence Life, Career Services, Greek Life, and Student Code of Conduct and Discipline. The team maintains an open-door policy for all students, faculty, and staff to ensure that the goals and missions of the College are fulfilled and practiced with a high degree of excellence in everything we do.

The purpose of Student Activities is to enhance the overall educational experience of the Miles College student while promoting cooperation, good citizenship, and opportunities that help cultivate leadership skills. This is in keeping with the guidelines set forth by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education.

 

Residence Life is committed through combined efforts of professional and student staff to help shape a residential environment that supports and stimulates students’ academic, personal, and interpersonal learning and development. Res Life is committed to helping students integrate their learning inside the classroom with their rich experience in the residence halls. In residential life, we strive to support the development of true communities inside the residence halls that develop communities of faith and learning that are respectful, supportive, purposeful, and intentionally structured.

The mission of Career Services is to equip students with tools for effective decision making, goal setting, and personal development. The benchmark of any college or university lies in the success of its graduates. To bolster the odds of success, Career Services promotes internships and encourages job placement. Going to college is a critical step, but showing the students how to greatly enhance their classroom learning by gaining real-world experience through internships is one of the goals of Career Services.

Miles College has an active fraternal system: a Multi-cultural/Black Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council. Fraternities and Sororities provide assistance to the Office of Student Affairs in implementing projects and programs to engage the campus community in extracurricular activities. Students who are members of fraternities and sororities establish friendships that last a lifetime. They also learn how to interact with people from diverse backgrounds in many different settings (business and social).
