Division of Student Life

“We are educators fostering a holistic developmental experience for students, empowering them to make meaningful contributions in the world.  We educate for life.”

The programs, services, resources and advocacy efforts of the division of student life are intentionally designed with attention to outcomes that expand students’ spheres of knowledge, engage them in transformative experiences and promote knowledge of self, others and the world.

Collectively, the work of student life reinforces and extends the academic experience and fosters experiences and opportunities that result in student learning, directly supporting the college's mission to create a dynamic experience in which women can "realize their full potential," preparing them to become "citizens of the world." Each area in student life endeavors to achieve outcomes relevant to its particular work; as a whole, the division of student life is committed to the following learning outcomes:

  • An awareness of self and a healthy self-identity; the capacity to examine, test, and challenge one’s own beliefs, values, attitudes, and behaviors
  • Engagement across difference, an understanding and appreciation of diversity, and capacities for intercultural communication and connectedness
  • Knowledge, skills, and abilities for ethical, compassionate, servant leadership and responsible, active, and engaged citizenship within the Agnes Scott community and beyond
  • Personal responsibility for one’s actions  and an understanding of their impact on self and others. Social responsibility to transform and sustain the local and global communities in which we live
  • Ability to make meaning of one’s life, purpose, and journey of engagement
  • Holistic growth, a balanced, healthy lifestyle, and a life-long commitment to learning
