Student Affairs Officers

The MASU Student Affairs Officers (SAO) Committee consists of the senior student affairs officers at Michigan public universities. These senior executives have responsibility for all matters that affect the student experience on campuses, including student life, health, development, safety, and regulations, as well as areas on campus like housing, extracurricular activities, student government, and Greek life. They are also deeply engaged in matters of student enrollment management. The SAOs work hand-in-hand with many of their peers, especially Academic Affairs Officers, to provide a high-quality and holistic student experience both in and out of the classroom. The SAO committee meets as a gathering of professionals to learn from one another and share best practices in higher education student affairs administration.

As with all MASU committees, during their convenings, members of the SAO Committee provide insight on the implications of current state and federal policy issues and fiscal dynamics affecting Michigan’s public universities. Traditional and emerging higher education topics and trends are considered from the perspective of student affairs officers, with particular attention paid to such issues as enrollment, student success, civic engagement, campus sexual assault prevention, and Title IX compliance.
