"From the moment you begin Orientation, until you walk across the stage at Commencement, the Office of Student Affairs is there to assist you in your experiences, both inside and outside the classroom."

Our role is to support you.

It's really that simple.

Our work and efforts can be split into two main areas of student support:

Clubs & Programming

Our office oversees the running of all student organizations and the development of student leaders. We act as advisors to the YDSG, the Student Government at YDS, and help to develop and maintain all initiatives and events that run under these student organizations.

In addition to this, the Office of Student Affairs also runs it's own programs and events, specifically focused on:

  • Growing Community
  • Developing Connections
  • Creating Spaces
  • Cultivating Student-Led Ideas

If you have an idea as a current student at YDS and don't know where to begin - you start right here with us! Email us to start the conversation.

Community Support

We also support our students, through the lifespan of their time at YDS, and all that life may throw at them during their time here. We advocate and work with partners at YDS to promote DEI-led initiatives, and to provide support to students in need, whatever their circumstance.

"If you don't know where to start, our office is probably a good place to start." - No question too small, no ask too great. We're here for you.
