Welcome to the Division of Student Life at SUNY Delhi. It is my honor to represent the Division and to provide support, guidance, and vision for all the professionals and students who work to enhance the student campus experience. I hope that you’ve chosen or are considering Delhi because of our caring and student-centered campus where everyone is a unique and valued individual and not a number or statistic.

The Division has a diverse offering of programs and services for students. Please avail yourself of our over 60 student clubs and organizations. Exercise in our wonderful Fitness Center. Enjoy and root for our Bronco Athletic teams participating in NCAA Division III competitions. Live and learn in the residence halls and campus learning communities.

Our counseling staff, healthcare staff, and peer mentors are active in outreach on any number of physical and mental health concerns. The College Auxiliary provides dining and nutritional services to our student body.

The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities and the University Police Department are committed to providing students with a safe environment conducive to academic success. These dedicated professionals work tirelessly to make sure our campus is one where all students and staff work, live, and learn in a community based on civility, respect, and understanding.
