With students at the heart of all that we do, the Division of Student Development is here to support student success both inside and outside of the classroom. Informed by decades of theory, best practices, and educational models that affirm and support our commitment to the holistic development of all students, we strive to help students develop an honest appreciation of themselves, make choices aligned with their values, sustain meaningful interpersonal connections, and engage deeply with those different from themselves--all in support of becoming engaged members of an equitable and inclusive society.
