About Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) encompasses student support services -- co-curricular activities, housing, counseling and career guidance, employment, and health, which serve all students. OSA also administers programs that provide support services to minority students, especially Hawaiians and Filipinos, other underrepresented students, students with disabilities, and senior citizens, and assists students who have special problems or concerns, such as academic grievances and student conduct issues.

The Office of Student Affairs is under the leadership and supervision of the Vice Chancellor for Students, who is responsible for the direction and coordination of student services. The Vice Chancellor for Students reports directly to the Chancellor and is a member of the University’s Mānoa Management Executive and Leadership Team.
