Support for Students


In the Student Development Division, led by the Vice President for Student Development, we complement students' classroom experiences by becoming actively involved in extracurricular and co-curricular activities and services. We encourage each student to take full advantage of the numerous growth and development opportunities existing on and off campus. Our goal is to assist students in becoming well informed, responsible, and contributing members of the Gonzaga community.
