Document Type



Formerly the Student Affairs Committee. The Student Development Office is made up of twelve departments, which are each committed to the development of the whole student. Different strategies to assist students will be used by each department with each one grounded in the mission of the College and the pursuit of excellence. A major focus of this process is the commitment to develop relationships based on respect and dignity for each individual regardless of background, race, creed, or color. The purpose and passion of the Student Development Division of Hope College is the development of covenantal relationships, where the mind, body, and spirit can pursue excellence. The collection includes newsletter; minutes and assorted records; orientation materials (1994, 1999-2000); Hope College Leadership Handbook, ca. 1989; and “The Keys to Drinking” campaign materials (posters, key chains, cards, brochures, “If At All” pins), ca. 2008 (see Oversized-S box for the latter material). Includes the Class of 1998 Orientation DVD.
