The Office also provides unique campus services such as budget leadership for the Council on Student Services, maintaining a Parents & Family website, managing the undergraduate Academic Travel Fund and IT coordination for all departments. The Office also functions as a clearing house for information and referral related to the student co-curricular and extra-curricular experience.

Led by Desmond Pouyat, Dean of Student Affairs, and reporting directly to the Principal and Vice-President, the Office is primarily charged with the responsibility of supporting the academic and personal success of UTSC students by ensuring that appropriate, efficient and student-friendly services are always in place. Student Affairs approaches education as an integrated holistic learning experience which values student development opportunities both in and outside the classroom.
