**The Division of Student Development strives to support the university’s mission by offering programs that foster leadership development, as well as by serving and supporting students as they experience the personal transformations of a Jesuit education. With that in mind, some staff resources have recently been reallocated. As a result, at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year, there will no longer be a stand-alone unit that exists for the sole purpose of coordinating student leadership development programs. Starting in the 2018-2019 academic year, ELP will be housed within SAGA, and The People’s Institute will be housed within SDMA. The Leadership for Social Change Learning Community will continue to be coordinated by ResLife, with Shannon Howes serving as the administrative partner for this program. Students are encouraged to connect with these three programs, as well as with the many additional student leadership development experiences that exist in other areas on campus.**
