Good Practice for Student Affairs ...

  • We relate with students one-on-one beyond the classroom and respect them as persons.
  • We are persistent in calling students to grow by challenging their limits.
  • We support students in discovering and developing their talents in purposeful ways.
  • We help students find doors of opportunity.
