OSAA Mission


The Mission of the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing Office of Student Affairs & Admissions (OSAA) is to promote nursing student learning, success, and personal growth.

To accomplish our mission, the office works to create a community for nursing students that supports their engagement, learning, and personal growth. The office encompasses many critical functions of the nursing student experience that work together to enhance the well-being of students in and outside the classroom.

Student Affairs puts Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing students at the heart of UMass Chan Medical School. It covers a wide range of student quality-of-life areas — all with the goal of helping nurses feel healthy, safe and that they belong. Enrollment Management encompasses Admissions, recruitment efforts, new student orientation, and supports the academic advising and registration process. The office is designed to ensure current students are set-up for success and that prospective students can easily transition into the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing and UMass Chan community. Essentially, we support students from recruitment to graduation and everywhere in between.

The Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing Office of Student Affairs & Admissions focuses on our Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) plan which guides the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing in recruiting, enrolling, retaining, and graduating diverse skilled nursing cohorts of lifelong learners.

Towards that goal, the office will:

  • Develop enrollment, strategies, processes, projections and goals that align with the mission, vision and goals established for the Tan Chingfen Graduate School of Nursing and greater UMass Chan Community;
  • Foster student learning and development by engaging students in their own academic planning;
  • Work collaboratively with the Office of Student Life, T.H. Chan School of Medicine and Morningside Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to ensure that policies, programs and procedures support the needs of nursing students;
  • Provide an environment that challenges, advocates for and is supportive of student goals and needs.
