Student Affairs The Division of Student Affairs engages each student in a safe and enriching residential learning community that fosters self-directed growth and development, so that each student becomes a contributing and interdependent global citizen. As a residential college, Albion is concerned with the growth and development of the whole person in a number of interrelated realms: intellectual, personal, social, spiritual, emotional, physical, vocational. Under the direction of the vice president for student affairs, the offices within the Student Affairs Division of the College provide programs and services which support the academic mission of the College and which encourage and enhance a full educational experience for each individual. These offices, each of which is headed by a professional staff member, include Residential Life, Campus Programs and Organizations, Chaplaincy, Student Health Services, Counseling Services, Anna Howard Shaw Women’s Center, Intercultural Affairs, and Campus Safety. A primary goal of the Student Affairs Division is to encourage students to a greater sense of responsibility: responsibility for their own education, responsibility for their own decision-making, responsibility for formulating defensible positions on important issues — indeed responsibility for determining their own identity and life’s direction. Briton Bucks The money placed on the 1Card is known as Briton Bucks. Students can add Briton Bucks to their accounts by using a credit/debit card on the website at www. albion1card.com, phone the Albion 1Card Service Center at 888/435-6027, mail the Albion 1Card Service Center at P.O.
