It is the aim of the Student Development division to support the teaching and learning mission of the College. Each part of the Division uniquely and collaboratively contributes to the successful fulfillment of the mission of the whole Division. This mission is to be a catalyst for change and innovation as the college intensifies its focus on student success and completion.
