The mission of the Student Life department is to empower students to become authentic and successful learners. We challenge and guide students to deepen and expand their learning at the college by offering opportunities and creating spaces for transformational learning. These activities form the Four Pillars of Student Life: Student Support, Student Engagement, Student Leadership and Student Development.

As Student Life Staff, we endeavor to engage students with compassion, empathy, humor and integrity. Recognizing that learning is an ongoing process that occurs within the active context of students’ lives, we strive to facilitate a community that balances the paradoxical tensions necessary for a thriving learning environment.
