Division of Student Affairs

On behalf of the entire Division of Student Affairs staff, welcome to Valdosta State University.  We are a student-centered campus, and very proud of the many successes our students have achieved both in and out of the classroom.  Students are what make Valdosta State the dynamic, growing and nationally recognized institution it is.  The professional staff in the Division of Student Affairs is dedicated to providing quality services, support, and programs for our students, and the campus community. We strongly encourage student involvement and ownership of their college experience.  As such, we offer opportunities for involvement in various student organizations, student employment, and volunteer experiences.
Through our partnerships with students, parents, faculty, and staff; we strive to empower, support, and engage students in their development of the skills and knowledge necessary to be life-long learners.  We are committed to student development. If there is any way the Student Affairs team can assist you, please contact my office at 229-333-5941 or email me at rmast@valdosta.edu.
