Student Affairs

Student Affairs strives to become a leading model of innovative approaches for student-centered initiatives.

One of the strengths of UC Merced is its diverse and talented student body. The Division of Student Affairs is committed to maintaining a campus community that celebrates diversity, academic achievement and civic engagement. We also are committed to providing services and support that allow our students to realize their intellectual, physical, social and emotional potential.

Student Affairs recruits and develops dedicated students who are committed to lifelong learning. In keeping with the university's Principles of Community, we cultivate a campus environment characterized by respect for human dignity and diversity.

By supporting Student Affairs, you are assisting our undergraduate and graduate students to achieve excellence in and outside of the classroom and laboratory.

We welcome you to direct any inquiries you may have to Jeff Porto, Director of Development at or (209) 228-4132. 

Thank you for your support. Every gift makes a difference.
