Human Development Student Association (HDSA)

HDSA meets on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. See details below!

The Human Development Student Association (HDSA) is the official student organization of the Department of Human Development focused on professional development, scholarly activity and community service. The goal of HDSA is to provide students with meaningful experiences outside the classroom to enhance their education. HDSA activities are geared toward understanding lifespan development from an interdisciplinary perspective.  All Human Development majors, minors, and pre-Human Development majors are encouraged to join HDSA. There is no minimum class standing or grade point average required. To join HDSA all you need to do is attend an HDSA meeting. Join the HDSA Facebook group!  HDSA faculty advisor is Dr. Christine El Ouardani.
