Student Life

The Division of Student Life provides opportunities for all students to develop personally, socially and intellectually. In support of the college’s academic mission, we foster the skills engaged citizens need for success and achievement. We create active learning environments that support students’ co-curricular experience. Our programming and services reflect the values of community, inclusiveness, responsibility, leadership and wellbeing.

The Student Life central office serves as a general advocate for all RISD students. We are the people to turn to when seeking support for any number of challenges or when you’re not quite sure whom to ask about your particular need. We will connect you to resources to help you successfully navigate your time at RISD.
