Office of Student Development – Helping Students Thrive

Message from the Dean of Students

Dr. Letitia WilliamsWelcome to the Student Development offices in the Division of Student Development and Success. Student Development consists of 11 offices and centers all dedicated to HELPING STUDENTS THRIVE!

We create and offer educationally purposeful learning experiences, activities and services that foster student wellbeing and success within and beyond the classroom.  Our goal is to help you connect with the Firebird community, discover your passion, grow as leaders and change makers, and reach your potential.

Our understanding that every student has unique identities, experiences and needs frames the work we do.  We celebrate the diversity of Firebird nation and have something for every student.  I encourage you to visit The Firebird Nest our student engagement platform, to see opportunities to get involved, stay connected, and succeed at UDC.  If you have questions, reach out and we will be happy to assist you.

In service,
