We are committed to the comprehensive development of students and to the transformation of their lives.

The Student Engagement Unit of Student Affairs complements the academic mission of Longwood University in the formation of responsible and connected Citizen Leaders in diverse and inclusive communities.

We are committed to the comprehensive development of students and to the transformation of their lives. Through meaningful and purposeful programs, as well as experiential learning, leadership, and service opportunities, students will broaden their world view and will make positive contributions throughout their lives.

 Core Values of Student Engagement include:

  • Access and inclusion—creating a welcoming environment and climate where all have the opportunity to fully participate and thrive on campus and beyond
  • Community—creating collaborative partnerships, and connections to achieve shared visions and goals
  • Education & learning—consistently and intentionally engaging in practices, programs, and activities that reflect multiple ways of knowing, being, and experiencing the world
  • Transformative experiences—establishing experiences that build capacity and contribute to making positive contributions for the common good
  • Accountability & transparency—evaluating and assessing progress towards achieving goals and outcomes and openly sharing information broadly on campus
