Student Development | Judson University Christian College

Office of Student Development


Student Development is a community that intentionally seeks to lead students in Christ-like transformation as we encourage their pursuit of academic excellence.


With Christ at the center, it is our mission in Student Development to build transformational relationships in which students are developed holistically, resulting in God-honoring, globally-minded, responsible persons.


Passionate Faithfulness  

The staff will serve God with all their heart, mind, body and soul and model a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Spiritual Growth  

We will make available multiple options for students to grow in their faith, no matter where they are in their spiritual journey. These may include relational mentoring, chapel, small groups, workshops, retreats, meetings, and other suggested venues.

Servant Leadership  

Staff will lead by putting others' needs first without compromising integrity, authority, or student safety. At the same time they will be compassionate and show grace when warranted.

Academic Support

We will provide necessary programs to students who need tutoring, mentoring, counseling, and other personal, spiritual, and academic needs.

Campus Collaboration & Communication  

Student Development will communicate with all areas of the campus to continue to embody the mission of Judson University. We understand that the decisions we make affect not only our area, but all areas. We strive to develop strong partnerships with the campus and work in tandem with them.

Global Engagement  

We will encourage and develop student, staff, and faculty connections with others in our global community through mission trips, chapel presentations and speakers, campus-wide initiatives, small groups and other means that become available to us.
