The Division of Student Development is responsible for co-curricular life. Its programs and policies are founded on the belief that life outside the classroom influences a student's growth and development as much as the academic experience. Programs reflect the importance of the residential nature of the College. The process of self-governance in residence halls encourages students to resolve conflicts and to learn how to live effectively in a community. These programs are diversified, but all support the idea that education is a process of intellectual and social growth and change.
Student Development designs, implements and evaluates programs and services in the following areas: student success, wellness, recreational sports, career development, counseling, athletics, residence life, student activities, campus safety and security, health services, service learning, alcohol and drug education, and conduct. Members of the Office of Student Development work closely with student organizations and Student Government.
While our contacts with students are normally confidential, we reserve the right to contact parents when we think that it is appropriate to do so.
