Division of Student Development
In support of our Catholic, Jesuit mission, the Division of Student Development at Saint Louis University facilitates programs, services and experiences that help students develop as leaders who are holistically formed, critically reflective, and socially and personally responsible. As a Division, we operate in partnership with other University departments and our students to assist them in reaching their full development as persons recognizing that learning takes place, formally and informally, in the classroom and through the activities, experiences and lives of students outside the classroom. Student formation includes the physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, and moral growth that takes place during a student’s SLU experience. Our diverse profile of services, including over a dozen departments and programs, contribute to this holistic learning environment. Our staff consists of over 100 committed professionals, whose diversity, advanced education, commitment to student learning, and aspiration to excellence is evident.
