Overview and Staff

The Center for Student Development is dedicated to fostering student success and a sense of belonging for all students and families connected to New Paltz.

Student Development provides accepted students with a positive transitional experience beginning with orientation and course registration prior to their first semester. We continue to provide mentoring and outreach to students in their first year, as well as health promotion programs to foster healthy decision-making throughout a student's college career.
