As the Dean of Student Development, I have the honor of working with a dedicated team of individuals that are collectively focused on the holistic development of Florida Southern students. It is truly a privilege to be involved in the lives of our talented students and to witness first-hand the ways in which they make Florida Southern College a better place while preparing for the next steps in the journey of life.– Bill Langston, Dean of Student Development

Mission

The office of Student Development supports the Mission of the college by modeling Cornerstone behaviors that foster the creation of an intentional community, encouraging students to become the best version of themselves and supporting and challenging them to become clear thinking, self-aware ambassadors of good-will. We embrace the foundational principles of:

  • Contributing to a Learning Community that is welcoming and safe, that serves each student equitably and individually, promotes a life that is healthy and balanced and enhances personal excellence through ongoing educational and developmental programs and services.
  • Maintaining an environment that affords both physical and emotional safety and that provides the foundation for personal development and increased self-awareness.
  • Offering meaningful opportunities to cultivate civic engagement and responsible citizenship that embraces and appreciates diversity in all forms.
  • Creating an environment that instills a sense of individual as well as collective institutional pride through a student-centered approach in the development of institutional policies and procedures.
