Under the auspices of St. John’s University Division of Student
Affairs, the Department of Student Life on the Staten Island campus
is dedicated to ensuring that each one of our students has the
opportunity to engage in a rich collegiate experience.
In the supportive environment of the Staten Island campus
community, Student Life professionals work in close partnership
with faculty, staff, administration, and students to create an
environment on campus that compliments classroom and academic
experiences. We offer co-curricular and extra-curricular programs
and services that foster student learning, leadership development,
civic and moral responsibility, friendship, and creative expression
in the spirit of our Catholic and Vincentian tradition.
Campus life on Staten Island is vibrant, welcoming, and
community-centered and offers many academic, social, recreational,
cultural, and leadership experiences for all students. Every
student is invited to be fully engaged in campus life, and it is
easy to get involved. Whether you’re a freshman or upperclassman,
resident student or commuter, undeclared major or declared,
extroverted or shy, you can be involved! If there is a program or
service that you do not see listed on this Web site that you are
interested in, be sure to contact Student Life as new clubs,
services, programs, and activities are added each semester. We
welcome your suggestions.
Programs and services offered by the Department of Student Life
are overseen by the Dean of Student Life. It is the
philosophy of the Dean of Student Life to promote growth by holding
students accountable for their actions and by assisting them in
developing problem-solving skills.
The Dean and other administrators of the department act as
advocates for students and will assist students with any needs they
may have either directly or by personal referral. Students
who are unsure where to go for assistance or questions on any
matter are encouraged to contact Student Life.
