Throughout UNC’s history, the entity for “Student Affairs” has been affiliated with or known by several different names including: Dean of Students, Deans of Men and Women, Division of Student Services, and Assistant Dean of Student Affairs. Regardless of the unit's official name, these offices and divisions have overseen various departments and areas to assist students with both classroom and non-class activities such as academic advising and health centers. As such, this particular collection represents several units related to the concerns of students and student experience.
Jack Shaw was the first Dean of Students in 1958, and was in charge of student affairs. The General Catalog (aka Bulletin) first uses the name "Division of Student Affairs" in the 1981-1982 academic year. In 2000, the Division of Student Affairs and all offices reporting to it were disbursed to other academic entities, mostly Academic Affairs. In 2019, under restructuring by President Andy Feinstein, a new unit formally known as the Division of Student Affairs was created.
