University Affairs

The Department of University Affairs is dedicated to enhancing the quality of student life and creating a sense of community. We collaborate with various university departments to address topics such as sexual assault, student success, student involvement opportunities, and overall campus climate. Ultimately, our department is committed to making a better NC State for all students.

Meet the Director

Hello, everyone! My name is Soraya Russell, and I am a rising junior pursuing a dual degree in International Affairs and Business Administration with a minor in Mandarin Chinese. Throughout my first two years at State, I have worked to create a positive campus climate for all students. In 2015, I co-founded DIVE, a student organization that promotes outdoor activity and diversity education. I also serve as an Ambassador for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and a recent study abroad student in 台灣 (Taiwan). Language education and global gender equity are just two of the things that I’m passionate about. Aside from those interests, I enjoy weight lifting, and traveling; but most importantly–eating.
