The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) serves as the primary focal point for addressing student needs, issues, and concerns and serves as a resource and referral office for all faculty, staff, and students. The OSA also represents the student’s perspective to the Vermont Law and Graduate School community.
This office works with all segments of the Vermont Law and Graduate School community to help students develop through opportunities, advice, and assistance. The Director of Student Affairs provides consultation, new program development, and assistance with special projects. The OSA publishes the Student Handbook, advises the Student Bar Association (SBA), coordinates campus-wide community meetings, supervises first-year orientation, coordinates crisis intervention and emergency response strategies in conjunction with the Administration, and promotes the academic and personal growth and development of all students.
The secondary function of the OSA includes oversight of student event planning and sponsorship or participation in programming, as well as Commencement and related activities and events.
The OSA also oversees the Student Ambassador Program. Student Ambassadors report to the Director of Student Affairs and are responsible for assisting with Fall Orientation, Alumni Affair events, Development activities, Admissions Open House, and other various events. When not in class, Ambassadors are on-call, responsive to campus emergencies and last-minute event needs, whenever requested by the OSA.
Finally, the OSA also manages student lockers and VLGS identification cards. There are blocks of time set aside during orientation week for new students, faculty, and staff to get VLGS ID cards. An email announcement will go out when lockers are ready for rent. Please see Theresa Johnson, Assistant Director for Student Affairs, if you have questions about lockers, or ID cards.
