The Division of Student Development is committed to creating a vital and engaged campus community that challenges and supports undergraduate, graduate and professional students to learn and develop the knowledge, skills, and values needed to lead and serve in an interdependent, global society. Our approach is both holistic and inclusive. Holistic in that student growth and development is fostered intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually. Inclusive in that all members of the campus community are encouraged to become actively engaged in the teaching and learning process.
Our distinct Catholic/Jesuit mission affords us an opportunity to develop women and men of integrity, deeply committed to improving the quality of life for all persons, particularly those most disenfranchised in society. Working in partnership with other areas of the campus, Student Development provides programs, services and activities to assist students in developing the competencies, skills and values needed to lead and serve in a diverse and changing world. We seek to do this by fulfilling our strategic goals.
