Student Affairs

Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs website! The Division of Student Affairs is committed to the educational mission of Spelman College. We partner with faculty and staff across campus to prepare students to become global citizens through meaningful out-of-class experiences and learning-centered environments.

We provide a dynamic and interactive campus community with a variety of diverse programs and services designed to enhance the personal growth and development of our students. Whether you reside on campus or commute to campus, your engagement in the life of the Spelman community will determine your success at Spelman and the quality of your college experience.

Spelman College has a proud legacy of cultivating women who demonstrate academic excellence, ethical leadership and a commitment to positive social change. Spelman offers an intellectually stimulating community that fosters a love of life-long learning, promotes global awareness, sparks a passion for bettering the world, and nurtures meaningful relationships both inside and outside the classroom.

We offer nearly 70 student organizations, and an active cultural community that has a variety of programs, events, activities, concerts, theater and dance productions presented by students, faculty, guest lecturers and entertainers. Students also develop leadership and organizational skills through involvement in student government, campus organizations, community service, and through service on a variety of campus planning committees.

We hope you will take advantage of the numerous opportunities to get involved in our community and continue Spelman’s rich legacy of women in leadership.
