One of the major organizational divisions within California State University, East Bay, the Division of Student Affairs (formerly
known as Student Services) had jurisdiction over services and programs relating to student life and welfare. Student Affairs
was established in 1960 and oversaw Admissions, Activities, Counseling, and the Registrar. The division incorporated and/or
created new departments throughout the 1960s. Student Affairs became Student Services in 1967. In 1997, Student Services became
known as Student Affairs again.
The Division of Student Affairs, in its final iteration in 2009, consisted of: Academic Support and Retention, Student Leadership
and Campus Life, Health Wellness, and Safety, and the Vice President’s Office. Academic Support and Retention included: Academic
Advising and Career Education (AACE), EXCEL, McNair Scholars Program, Student Academic Services (includes: Educational Opportunity
Program [EOP], Renaissance Scholars Program, and Summer Bridge) and Upward Bound. Student Leadership and Campus Life included:
Associated Students Incorporated, Student Housing and Residential Life, Student Judicial Affairs, and Student Life and Leadership
Programs. Health, Wellness and Safety included: Counseling & Psychological Services, Student Disability Resource Center, Student
Health Services and University Police Department.
In summer 2009, the departments of the Division of Student Affairs were subsumed under three other Divisions. The Division
of Academic Affairs incorporated the Department of Academic Support and Retention. The Division of Planning and Enrollment
Management (PEM) incorporated the Office of the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs, Student Judicial Affairs, Student
Life and Leadership, and Associated Students, Inc. The Division of Planning and Enrollment Management then became the Division
of Planning, Enrollment Management, and Student Affairs (PEMSA). The Division of Administration and Finance incorporated Student
Housing and Residential Life, Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Disability Resource Center, Student Health Services,
and the University Police Department. The reorganization eliminated the position of Vice President of Student Affairs.
