Message From the Division of Student Affairs

Dear Students,

While attending Harvey Mudd College, students will find that it’s an important time for personal development and intellectual growth. As a college, we encourage you to discover what it means to live in a diverse community and learn how to strengthen your ethical core and leadership abilities. We work alongside students to engage them in the opportunities available to them, understand adult responsibity and the honor code, and create a campus environment where learning and transformational experiences occur inside and outside the classroom.

The Division of Student Affairs, which includes the offices of Campus Life, Career Services, Community Engagement, Institutional Diversity, Residential Life, and Student Health and Wellness, plays an integral role in crafting and supporting students’ wellness and their personal, social and academic development. In collaboration with the associate dean for academic affairs and faculty members,  our programs and services complement, support and enhance the mission of the College.

All my best,

Dr. Cynthia A. Martinez

Interim Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students
