Student Life

Dean of Students

The Dean of Students promotes the personal and social development of our students through extracurricular activities that promote the health and well-being of all Albizu University (AU) members. We focus on a comprehensive perspective and offer complementary services such as individual counseling, tutoring, reasonable accommodations, and student associations, among others.

An Inclusive Community

A Place for Everyone

Our campuses offer a safe and open environment for all students. We also offer career planning resources.

The San Juan Campus and the Mayagüez University Center provide services to students in the Tutoring Center to assist them throughout their learning process and to strengthen basic skills and competencies. The objective of tutoring services is to promote high academic performance and help students develop study skills that facilitate and contribute to the learning process of university-level materials.

You can strengthen skills or competencies in the following subjects:

  • Mathematics
  • Spanish
  • Conversational English
  • Clinical skills
  • Concept development
  • Statistics
  • Psychopathology
  • Research

Tutoring Center services are available for students of Albizu University and community members. Students or people in the community can access these services free of charge by:

Albizu University does not currently offer student housing in its San Juan Campus or Mayagüez University Center. Our prime locations facilitate the search for alternative housing such as renting homes in surrounding areas. Nevertheless, the Dean of Students provides a list of potentially available facilities during orientation.

At Albizu University, you can collaborate with a specialist to write your CV (resumé), undergo an effective job search, and prepare for interviews in your chosen field.  Academic advisors in San Juan and Mayagüez collaborate with students to prepare professional plans and emphasize the necessary skills to enter the workforce.

Albizu University is an inclusive university and believes that education is for everyone. The university is committed to upholding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a national mandate that protects the civil rights of individuals with disabilities or functional diversity. This federal law states that a physical or mental impairment does not limit a person's right to participate in professional, academic, and personal areas in society.

  • For this reason, any student with a disability or functional diversity has the right to request reasonable accommodation to participate in a course, program, service, or facility that ensures that a student with a disability or functional diversity is not segregated or excluded. These reasonable modifications, which are based on the recommendations of a specialist, provide those students with the opportunity to perform on equal terms as students without disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, within reasonable parameters, according to the impediment and individual needs of a student.
  •  The university’s service coordinator for students with disabilities or functional diversity will provide guidance and inform students of their rights as they go about requesting these services. Interested students may call (787) 725-6500, ext. 1588, 1570, or contact the licensed professional counselor by email. The licensed counselor is also available at the Mayagüez University Center.
  • Procedure to apply for reasonable accommodation services:
    • Request for reasonable modification services
    • Informed consent
    • Authorization for disclosure of information and records
    • Medical certification for reasonable modification

Clubs and Organizations

Summary

We are proud to say that there are 22 student groups in the San Juan Campus and the Mayagüez University Center. These groups represent their academic programs, organize activities to reflect what they have learned in the classroom by helping those less fortunate, and integrate new modalities into their respective disciplines. Most importantly, they redefine what a student group is. They have coordinated symposia and discussion groups, broken down barriers, and touched on legislative processes to speak for those without a voice. Our groups reflect Albizu University’s fundamental humanist spirit.
