Student Service encompasses 29 departments and units providing
a generous array of programs, services, and credit and non-credit learning
opportunities that complement students’ classroom experiences and prepare them
for a post-college life as engaged citizens. Student Service delivers
transformational learning opportunities such as study abroad, student
leadership development programs, projects that develop civic responsibility,
career identification and preparation programs, and hands-on involvement in
Student Service departments also provide a wealth of services that can help
students outside the classroom to enrich their lives and improve their studies.
The Counseling Center, Department of Diversity Initiatives, Disability
Resource Center, Fraternity and Sorority Life, International Center, LGBT Resource Center, Military
and Veterans Center, Student Health Services, and more
have resources to help students meet their personal needs and find their place
on campus. Career Services offers assistance in navigating internships and finding
employment, while the Office of Campus Life, Osprey Productions, the Student Union and Recreation and Wellness provide
entertainment and wellness opportunities through the year.
Undergraduate and graduate students
wishing to explore or enhance their grasp of various academic majors will also
find meaningful non-credit experiences in a number of the Student Service departments. For example, Communications, English, and Art and Design majors
can hone their skills on the staff of UNF's student media outlet, Spinnaker Media;
Accounting majors can serve on Student Government's Budget and Allocations Committee; and students
in a variety of majors can find rewarding experiences in the Student Union.
Student Service departments also offer opportunities specifically for graduate
students. For instance, the LGBT Resource Center works with graduate students seeking
practicum/internship and volunteer opportunities. The Counseling Center serves as
an approved internship site for students completing their graduate training in
mental health counseling. UNF Preschool and Recreation
and Wellness both offer undergraduate and graduate students opportunities for
internships and volunteer work. Opportunities also exist for veterans who apply
for a Veterans Affairs (VA) Work Study position at the Military and Veterans Resource Center.
