Scope and Content of Collection

From the Student Affairs profile for the Office of Student Life, http://www.sa.ucsb.edu/GuideToServices/DepartmentDetail.asp?DepartmentID=16 :
"The Dean of Students meets and corresponds with students and parents, monitors student political issues and crises, student demonstrations and rallies, student conduct cases, and student problems such as alcohol and drug abuse and student deaths. The staff of the Office of Student Life help students with a variety of issues and concerns that affect the quality of student life. We provide general assistance to students in problem solving and emergencies, addressing grievance issues, and offer referrals when necessary. When a personal or family crisis calls students away from campus, we process administrative withdrawals and petitions for incomplete grades. We provide educational programs on hate incidents and crimes, academic conduct, and the first-year experience. We are responsive to the needs and issues of students on campus and out in the Isla Vista community, and actively work with students and other departments to provide solutions to these problems. Through the Isla Vista Community Development Peer program, students represent the University in the community and through various projects and programs help develop a sense of community and work towards creating a safer environment in Isla Vista. We actively promote a set of community standards that affirms the right of freedom of expression within our community and also affirms the campus commitment to the highest standards of civility. We provide enforcement of general campus regulations through both formal and informal disciplinary processes.
"The Office of Student Life also provides services for campus organizations' members and leaders including: facilities room scheduling, organization advising and consultation, leadership training and development, program planning and limited funding sources, fund raising, trustee accounts, publicity and promotion, fraternities and sororities, special projects and events, Nexus on Campus This Week Monday calendar, organizational development resource library, UCSB Campus Regulations Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations, and Students, and an on-line campus organization directory. During the academic year, Student Life co-coordinates (with the College of Letters & Science) Interdisciplinary Studies 20: 'Introduction to the University,' a 3.0-unit academic course in which students examine the nature and purpose of higher education and their own relationship to the intellectual, social and cultural climate of the University."
For more information, see the Office of Student Life page, http://www.sa.ucsb.edu/osl/
