What is Student Development?
The Student Development Division provides support services that encourage you to remain a life-long learner. Our staff members, along with the professors and others across college, are concerned with your holistic development. It is our belief that teaching and learning are not limited to the traditional classroom - each occurs with every service and support we provide.
Teaching You To Better Help Yourself
Student Development services and programs assist students towards their academic and career objectives by encouraging self direction and by promoting personal development and empowerment.
Our emphasis is on helping students to learn skills and strategies to better help themselves. It is our desire to assist students in learning how to find and use information, to learn how to make better decisions for themselves, form insights, and understand more about themselves and the world around them.
The staff at Daytona State are committed to supporting your efforts to meet your personal, academic, and career goals. We appreciate that you are a holistic person who holds many roles and responsibilities including those of student, parent, employee caretaker and friend. Our goal is to help you maximize your potential within all of these important roles. No matter which campus location you choose, services and resources are available to support your needs.
