Student Affairs Staff

Dr. Robert Sabbatini, Dean of Students

Welcome! The Office of Student Affairs is here to assist you. Our office includes the staff in the Blake A building, the Wellness Center, and the Chaplain's Office.

Our Vision.  The Office of Student Affairs is committed to the idea that education is the making of a man in all facets of development. The Office of Student Affairs creates an environment that challenges our students to take responsibility for their own education and personal development, preparing them for a satisfying and productive life characterized by self-discipline, sound values, a spirit of service, a commitment to something larger than themselves, and a life-long zeal to live life to its fullest.
