Message From the Vice President of the Division of Student Development

The Division of Student Development at Fresno Pacific University is responsible for implementing a robust schedule of fun and engaging co-curricular programs designed to holistically develop students. This is accomplished through the efforts of experienced, caring, and dedicated professional staff who are devoted to the growth and development of all FPU students.

A primary goal of FPU’s co-curricular program is to see students grow in their knowledge and experience of Christ. Wherever you are in your journey is absolutely fine with us. Whether you have been a Christian your entire life or you are just now kicking the tires, we want to connect, serve, and journey with you in ways that are genuine and meaningful. You will absolutely feel like you matter at Fresno Pacific.

The Division of Student Development team is dedicated to supporting all students at FPU. We work hard to ensure that students are provided many opportunities to grow and develop. There are many ways you can become involved in the life of FPU.  Within Division of Student Development and the co-curricular at large, you will have the opportunity to engage with outstanding initiatives such as intramural sports, student activities, international and intercultural programs, spiritual development activities, residence hall & commuter programming, and career development opportunities, just to name a few. 

As FPU students, there are more than 100 student leadership positions available to you. Whether you work as a Resident Assistant, Peer Mentor, Commuter Assistant, or Student Government Officer, you will gain knowledge and skills that will serve you for a lifetime. Furthermore, as a leader on a faith-based campus, you will be challenged to foster an attitude and lifestyle marked by spiritual maturity and service to those in need.

While you are here at FPU, take time to find those things that you are passionate about. Take some calculated risks and step out of your comfort zone. Attend a program that is unlike anything you have seen before. Fervently pursue new challenges and experiences. You may be surprised just how rewarding this venture can be.

God Bless!
