Mission, Vision, Values

FSU Panama City attracts and encourages academic and personal curiosity, exploration and forward thinking to build meaningful experiences, opportunities and relationships. 

Complementing the classroom experience, Student Affairs offers a variety of student support services as well as activities and involvement to enhance students' overall well being and development. Our office welcomes and engages students through programs, organizations and resources that anticipate and respond to the ever-changing needs of a diverse population.

The Florida State University Division of Student Affairs empowers and supports all students to achieve their full potential.

We believe in the power of the student experience to develop graduates who positively impact the world.

To support learning and success, we uphold our values of:

  • Community: Our work exists through relationships of trust and mutual respect that create a sense of belonging. We cultivate community through a connected, collective network. We collaborate with the FSU community to shape a supportive and safe environment.
  • Student Development: We prioritize the development of the whole person so that everyone realizes their full potential. We educate and provide experiences for lifelong learning through engagement with staff members, programs, services, and facilities.
  • Inclusivity: Honoring the intersectionality of all people, we create inviting spaces to learn from each other and build more complex ways of being. We value and advocate for an equitable campus community.
  • Well-Being: We create campus environments that promote wellness as a foundation of a productive and positive experience. We respect each other and hold one another accountable for practices that help our community thrive.

The Department of Student Affairs is excited to have you on campus and wants to help you create a successful university experience.
