Student Development

Center for Student Development

The Center for Student Development is comprised of Professional and Career Development, Counseling Services, Health Services, & Multi-Cultural Affairs. Offering a wide variety of opportunities and programs to our students and the campus community is at the core of what we do.

The Center for Student Development promotes positive choices regarding physical, mental, and social well-being of the individual members of the campus community. This is achieved by fostering the development of insights, values, and ideas toward implementation of each individual’s personal, academic and professional goals. The Center for Student Development is committed to developing individual leadership skills and an appreciation for diversity among individuals by affording opportunities for individual growth within a diverse campus population.

The Center for Student Development provides free ‘one-stop-shopping’ for students seeking any of our available services. Located on the lower-level of Cantrell Hall, we offer:

  • a Health & Wellness area for Counseling Services, Health Services, and Wise County Health Department services, including a fully-equipped exam room, an observation area for sick students, and a separate waiting area for sick students
  • a Professional and Career Development office that offers a career reference library, computer access, and a conference room.
  • a convenient, one-stop appointment area for all Center for Student Development services.
