Welcome to the Office of Student and University Affairs! Our office is comprised of many different departments, including University Affairs; Student Affairs; the School of Online Education; and the non-degree schools, including the School of Language Studies, the School of Test Preparation, and the School of Professional Development.
The Office of Student and University Affairs was established in May of 2015 by VIU’s President, Dr. Isa Sarac. Since its development, our office has played a vital role in the many discussions and decisions relating to our growth as a university. We have restructured our admissions office, developed fresh new marketing and recruitment plans, and developed many new student programs, including the Mentorship & Leadership program and the Diversity Luncheon series. In 2017, we are looking to establish and develop the Health Science Institute, expand our academic partnership with local and international institutions as well as reinforce our online programs to accommodate significant demands of long distance education.
With over 50 highly qualified, equally diverse faculty and staff, our office is committed to our mission of educating students from all over the world and helping them fulfill their dream of studying in the United States of America. As we continue to grow, I am confident that we will work together as a team to enhance the learning and living environment for our students and the communities we serve.
