Student Affairs & Enrollment Management (SAEM)

Students walking in front of the administration building

Student Affairs & Enrollment Management (SAEM) serves students guided by the values of integrity, community, social justice, transformation, and innovation — values that are at the heart of the San Francisco State ethos and reflective of our unique place and history. We hope to create that sense of “home away from home” and be a place where students can seek assistance or find inspiration when they don’t know where else to go.

Encompassing roughly 25 units and functions, SAEM is responsible for providing activities, advocacy, programs, services, and support to students from the time they first begin considering their application to attend San Francisco State through when they graduate with their desired academic goal and become leaders in their careers and in their communities.
