The following people make up the Student Life Leadership Team, which works closely with AVC/DOS Katya Armistead to plan, coordinate, and assess the programs and services of the cluster's various departments and initiatives. More than half of the team attended UCSB as a student prior to working on campus and team members average more than 10 years of professional experience at UCSB.

We hope that you will get to know us! Please never hesitate to contact us personally or to say 'hello' if you see us on campus.
