The Division of Student Development purposefully creates meaningful experiences and opportunities for students outside of the classroom, tends to students' multi-faceted wellbeing, and provides learning and growth opportunities.
In Student Development, assessment efforts help us evaluate where we have been so we can make informed decisions about programs and resources.
A dedicated staff of professionals from across nine departments partner with others to deliver holistic development and formation.
The Holy Cross community works hard to ensure the transition from high school to Holy Cross is smooth. The College offers several programs to support students and families during this time.
Holy Cross recognizes that although students are the drivers to their Holy Cross education, family involvement is important on their journey through emerging adulthood. As such we have an office of Parent and Family Engagement dedicated to building partnerships with families.
There are a multitude of ways to get involved in the greater Worcester community that Holy Cross is a part of.
