Student Development

What is Student Development?

The  Student Development Division provides support services that encourage you to remain a life-long learner. Our staff members, along with the professors and others across college, are concerned with your holistic development. It is our belief that teaching and learning are not limited to the traditional classroom - each occurs with every service and support we provide.

Teaching You To Better Help Yourself

Student Development services and programs assist students towards their academic and career objectives by encouraging self direction and by promoting personal development and empowerment.

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.

The staff  at Daytona State are committed to supporting your efforts to meet your personal and academic goals. We appreciate  that you are a holistic person who holds many roles and responsibilities including those of student, parent, employee caretaker and friend. Our goal is  to help you maximize your potential within all of these important roles. No matter which campus location you choose, services and resources are available to support your needs.

Student Equity

The Student Development Office investigates and seeks to resolve student equity concerns and allegations of violations regarding sexual harassment and discrimination based on race, gender, religion, national origin, disability or genetic information. Students may submit a formal complaint to the Question & Answer Center on any college campus. The Question & Answer Center staff will collect the information and forward it to the Dean of Student Development for review and resolution at the lowest level possible. Depending on the nature of the concern, students may submit information directly to the Dean. Reasonable arrangements will be made for distance learning students who are unable to attend meetings on the Daytona Beach Campus.
