The Division of Student Experience & Operations encompasses a broad spectrum of services and supports all students as they seek to develop a deeper understanding of identity and faith, pursue academic goals, and embrace passions. Students have an opportunity to partner with staff, faculty, and administrators to create a campus culture in which students can flourish, thrive, and ultimately find confidence in who they are created to be.


Student Experience & Operations supports the mission of the University to sustain a learning community in which all students can prepare academically, socially, and spiritually for leadership in a complex, diverse, and rapidly changing world.


Student Experience & Operations aspires to develop programs and services that supports, engages, and retains all students, building life-long learners grounded in faith and ready to be change agents in an ever-changing world.




Education is transformational. “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education”

“Excel is an attitude rather than a program. It is not a prescribed set of practices or strategies but an approach that allows educators the time and structures to use their own expertise to address the individual challenges facing their students.”

Laureen Avery, Jason Corvine, and Lisa DiMartino

“If your actions inspire others to Dream more, Learn more, Do more and Become more, You are a Leader”
