Briar Cliff University prides itself on being a community of persons and learners within the Catholic and Franciscan tradition. A critical part of our community is the Student Development Division.

Student Development is committed to the whole person - the emotional, social, physical, and spiritual dimensions as well as the intellectual. There are caring persons working in a variety of positions who provide leadership in a rich range of programs. Each member of our staff is here to ensure that Briar Cliff students develop in all the ways that will bring success and true happiness in life.

As you look through the listing of services and opportunities available at The Cliff, I hope you see the underlying thread that connects all of them: focus on the student.
