Be a Listener. Problem-Solver. Change Leader.

Because higher education is vital to social and economic achievement, versatile administrators are needed who are highly skilled in working with diverse students and maximizing resources amid constant change. Student Life & Development focuses on understanding college’s effects on undergraduate student development from psychosocial, cognitive, moral and other perspectives, and on supporting student success in college adjustment, academic achievement, and personal development.
