Student Affairs

You see things; and you say "Why?"
But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?"

— George Bernard Shaw

Welcome to Harris-Stowe! On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs, I am delighted you’ve joined the Hornet family! The Division of Student Affairs exists to serve your needs from Orientation to Graduation.

To get the most out of your experience at HSSU, I want to personally encourage you to become involved in all aspects of your college life. Harris-Stowe students who participate in programs outside the classroom, as well as in their academic studies, are more likely to earn high GPAs and to graduate! It’s important that you take the initiative to explore all that HSSU has to offer — examine new philosophies, meet people from different cultures and backgrounds and explore new interests and activities.

I encourage you to use this Web site as a gateway to the many programs, services, facilities and Student Affairs staff available to you as a Harris-Stowe State University student. I hope that you will actively pursue the broadest and most rewarding student experience possible. If I, or any member of the Student Affairs staff, can assist you in that pursuit, or with any problem of any nature during your tenure here at HSSU, please feel free to contact us. I encourage you to drop by and meet our dedicated staff.

Your success is very important to us!

Charles Gooden
Dean of Student Affairs
