At the University of La Verne, our purpose is educational success. We aim to provide resources to support our students as they learn and develop leadership, critical-thinking, creativity and communication skills that will serve them positively throughout their careers and lifelong learning paths.
Supporting our diverse population of students is also an important value for the university. We strive for an inclusive campus culture reflecting the full diversity of this country, providing a climate that supports increased access, opportunity and equity in all aspects of university life.
Below is a brief introduction to just some of the offices and resources at University of La Verne that exist to support our students during their journey. Please visit or call them to learn more about how they can help.
Accessibility Services supports students with documented medical, physical, psychological, attention-deficit and/or learning disabilities to help maximize their potential for success in all aspects of campus life. Services include academic accommodations, self-advocacy, skill training, and disability-related educational programming for the university community.
International Services and Student Engagement
The Office of International Services and Engagement helps undergraduate and graduate international students and international scholars. We assist students from admission through graduation. The office advises students on maintaining visa status, how to work on campus or in Optional Practical Training (OPT), and requirements for remaining in the United States to work after graduation. They offer orientations, workshops, and other events to help international students and scholars thrive at La Verne.
The Center for Multicultural Services (CMS) at the University of La Verne is a dynamic cultural space for students to call their own. CMS creates and supports programs, services, and resources dedicated to promoting an understanding of diversity and inclusiveness within the campus community and community-at-large, fostering an environment of exploration, consciousness-raising, and empowerment, and collaboration among and celebration of our diverse communities. We offer a “living room” as a welcoming space for students to gather, coach students and others working with issues of diversity, provide diversity training workshops for the campus, advocate for inclusion and participation for historically marginalized and undocumented students, and cultivate community partnerships.
CMS empowers students through Peer Facilitator training, providing multicultural student leadership training, sponsoring students to attend leadership forums and conferences, advising and mentoring cultural clubs on campus, and supporting DREAMers.
Veteran Students Success Program
At the University of La Verne, we are proud to support students who are veterans or serving in the armed forces (two of our regional campuses are located on military installations). At all of our campuses, there is a knowledgeable VA Certifying Official who can help you navigate VA policies and procedures. The Sara and Michael Abraham Center for Veteran Student Success acts as an advocate and liaison for military- and VA-affiliated students, and will assist you throughout your educational journey with the University of La Verne.
Student Health Services
Wellness is crucial for academic success. All full-time undergraduate students and international students are enrolled in University Student Medical Insurance as part of their tuition, and other students may opt to purchase insurance. Services include first aid, outpatient services for acute and chronic problems, prescription and nonprescription medications, women’s health, birth control, immunizations and vaccinations, physical exams for sports, study abroad and other needs, lab tests, and health and wellness education.
Counseling and Psychological Services
Students at the University of La Verne can seek counseling and psychological services to assist with anxiety and stress management, adjustment issues, mental health treatment, eating disorder or substance abuse, or any other mental or emotional health issue that may be concerning you. Students can make an appointment or call or visit for crisis support. Services are free to all students (undergraduate, graduate, adult, regional on-line campuses).
The Career Center provides professional development instruction and career-oriented support to ensure University of La Verne students graduate with the skills necessary to succeed in their chosen profession(s). We offer workshops on job-search skills, job placement and internship services, and one-on-one assistance with mock interviews and resume and cover letter reviews for all undergraduate, graduate, and regional campus students.
Housing and Residential Life
On-Campus housing is available to all students (undergraduate, graduate, CAPA, Law, and Physician Assistant Program). Residence Halls are located on the La Verne Campus. The mission of the Housing and Residential Life program is to partner with students living on-campus to create a learning environment where students feel they are part of the university, are engaged in productive citizenship, and expand their potential.
First Generation and Peer Mentoring
The Office of First Generation and Peer Mentoring provides support for first generation college students to learn, connect and engage successfully in a university setting. Through the Office of First Generation and Peer mentoring, students receive support through mentorship, parental involvement and self-reflective processes, as well as academic, personal and professional development programs and workshops.
