Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs supports all aspects of student life and learning outside the classroom, and does so via a focus on health and wellness, advocacy, access and accommodations, leadership development and co-curricular programming. The Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs oversees student support services and initiatives for the LaGuardia community.

From the Vice President

Welcome, from the LaGuardia Community College Division of Student Affairs. We hope you are ready to become fully immersed in campus life, and take advantage of the support services in place to help you thrive during your educational journey at the institution.

I am personally encouraging you to visit our Department of Athletics and Recreation to inquire about joining a sports team, or Office of Campus Life and Multicultural Exchange Programs to learn about various student activities and peer mentorship opportunities. And if you are interested in connecting with a peer group that allows you to explore your identity while carving out your place in this world, be sure to visit our Women’s Center and LGBTQI+ Hub. While here at LaGuardia, you may also find that balancing your academic, personal, and professional lives becomes challenging. If so, Counselors at the Wellness Center are here to help. And if some of those challenges include solidifying childcare, our Early Childhood Learning Center is available to both you and your children-the littlest members of the LaGuardia community. In addition, the Office of Health Services is here to provide resources and information about health and wellness from the inside out. And if you or a friend has a disability-whether visible or not-the Office of Accessibility and Neurodiversity Program are ready and willing to provide assistance. I also want to highlight our specialized units-Veterans Services, which offers a plethora of resources to our transitioning military members, and CUNY EDGE, which is dedicated to supporting students on public assistance. Finally, LaGuardia CARES will help any student experiencing housing and/or food insecurity.

Our overarching goal is to enhance students’ growth and development, and we hope to serve you in the very best ways possible. Thank you for choosing LaGuardia Community College. Whether this is your first semester or last, we are glad you’re here Hawk!
