The role of the Student Development Office is to interact with students, faculty, and staff members to represent student concerns and to provide programs and services that facilitate both personal and academic growth. Students' learning occurs in and out of the classroom – online, in a computer lab, in the cafeteria, classroom or a student activity.
We hope you will make the most out of your time at MassBay. It is important to us that we represent student concerns.

OFFICES & DEPARTMENTS
Student Affairs departments and staff members are dedicated to providing an environment that will enable students to effectively engage in academic and intellectual work, community service, and other activities that enrich their academic career. Staff members advise students, plan programs for student transition, uphold standards, provide academic resources and support, offer assistance with academic and career goals, and provide venues to participate in community and cultural events. By doing so, we hope to enhance the quality, character, and perspectives of our students.
