Welcome to the Hope
College Student Development Home Page. Student Development is
committed to each student and their intellectual, spiritual, and
personal development. We seek to provide support, challenge, care,
and a creative environment where students can explore and become
all they can be.
Student Development is
made up of twelve departments, which are each, committed to the development
of the whole student. Different strategies to assist students will
be used by each department with each one grounded in the mission of
the College and the pursuit of excellence. A major focus of this process
is the commitment to develop relationships based on respect and dignity
for each individual regardless of background, race, creed, or color.
Our expectations for students
is that they will be committed to becoming all that God intended them
to be, establishing relationships which respect differences, engaging
in intellectually challenging activities, and being accountable for
their decisions. The College places a high value on student involvement
and looks forward to meaningful interactions.
The purpose and passion
of the Student Development Division of Hope College is the development
of convenantal relationships where the mind, body, and spirit can pursue
