Student Development services and programs assist students towards their academic objectives by encouraging self direction and by promoting personal development and empowerment.
Our division is called Student Development instead of Student Services because it is our hope that we provide you with experiences that encourage you to remain a life-long learner. Our staff members are educators who, along with the professors and others across campus, are concerned with the development of you as a whole student. It is our belief that teaching and learning are not limited to the traditional classroom - each occurs with every service we provide.
Our emphasis is on helping students to learn skills and strategies to better help themselves. It is our desire to assist students in learning how to find and use information, to learn how to make better decisions for themselves, form insights, and understand more about themselves and the world around them.
