The graduate program in College Counseling and Student Development at Azusa Pacific University prepares individuals to become student affairs educators whose special interest is college students and the environments that affect their development as persons and as scholar-students.
The focus of the field of student affairs is students—serving, supporting, and challenging them in the out-of-classroom environment, and helping them maximize the educational and developmental benefits of their college experience. The skills and special training of student affairs professionals offer three invaluable contributions:
- To the institution – Student affairs serves as the primary vehicle for attaining the institution’s mission within the co-curriculum.
- To the students – Student affairs serves as a source of co-curricular services and activities in support of both their curricular education and their personal growth and maturation.
- To both the institution and its students – Student affairs is one of the few dominant integrative forces on the campus that strives to interpret the institution holistically to its students according to their individual needs and aspirations.
