The Division of Student Development is committed to the success and balance of the whole student by empowering students to develop the confidence and skills needed to make educated decisions about their lives and to become life-long learners. We implement this philosophy through our respect and value of individuality, creativity, diversity, and integrity.

Mission Statement

Focusing on the co-curricular experience, the Division of Student Development advances learning and success by encouraging intentional change through partnerships with students that are challenging and supportive.

Our Commitment to the Co-Curricular Learning Process

Student Development provides numerous co-curricular programs, giving students the opportunity to engage in fundamental learning experiences outside the formal setting of an academic classroom. These programs include, but are not limited to, new student orientation, student leadership, health and wellness, personal development and artistic, social and civic responsibility. To measure these rich learning opportunities, each department within Student Development has established student learning outcomes and tracks their progress in meeting these outcomes. These competencies and skills help to enhance and guide the students in their academic endeavors. Our co-curricular programs are assessed on an annual basis, the results of which are published in our annual report.
