Human Ecology’s Office of Student Development is a center for undergraduate freshman and transfer student activities. The counseling staff provides academic advising and personal counseling. They also help students navigate college and university requirements and resources, explore professional pathways, provide leadership opportunities, and more.

Advising and Counseling

Human Ecology provides academic, personal and financial counseling for students to receive academic and personal counseling. Students have access to college counselors, faculty advisors, and Directors of Undergraduate Studies in their majors.

Multicultural Programs

Human Ecology understands that a diverse community enriches the education and lives of all its members. The college provides a broad range of services and opportunities for students of color, and collaborates with university and New York State programs to assure that its students have access to our vast array of services.

  • Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program
  • Human Ecology Peer Partnership Program

Off-Campus Study

Human Ecology believes that experiential education can be an important part of a student's undergraduate career. The college and the university provide many options for students to explore other cultures and professional internships while studying and participating in programs off-campus.

Student Organizations

Getting involved in college and university communities through membership and leadership in student organizations is a vital part of student life. Human Ecology provides a wealth of opportunities through the organizations that it sponsors and advises. Students gain significant leadership and organizational skills, as well as professional exposure to their academic and professional fields of interest.

Leadership and Engagement

Engagement, transformative processes, and translational research are key themes in Human Ecology’s leadership programs. Students learn research and design approaches for problem solving, and they also experience leadership in professional research and practice.
