August Orientation

Message from the Vice President for Student Success and Inclusion

Welcome to the Rosalind Franklin University Community!

The Division of Student Affairs and Inclusion is a central department dedicated to meeting your needs while you are a student in one of our 18 academic programs at RFU.

As you continue your journey, please familiarize yourself with the services and opportunities available at RFU. We understand that balancing the demands of your academic work and your personal needs and responsibilities will be paramount to your success. I encourage you to engage and invest in this community – with your fellow students across the professions and with the faculty and staff. There will be many existing opportunities available to you for learning, entertainment, balance and service both in and outside of the formal curriculum. However, there is also opportunity for you to create the experience that best meets your needs. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is a commitment to individual perspectives and needs within this community.

If you have ideas for new initiatives, desire to explore your options further or if we can help you along the way, please reach out to our staff. We want to hear from you!
