The Walsh University Student Affairs team supports these activities, clubs, and organizations. Walsh’s Student Affairs department provides additional programs and services that respond to the needs of individual students, as well as those of the greater North Canton community.
Walsh University’s pledge is to give students a lifelong passion and appreciation for six core values: respect for self, others, and the world; integrity in thought, word and deed; excellence in education; an appreciation of diversity; hospitality; and selfless service.
Made up of a diverse group of dedicated staff, the Student Affairs team is committed to the holistic development of Walsh University’s students - mentoring, empowering and supporting them during their time at Walsh and beyond, including Counseling Services, and developmental programs for Walsh’s residential, commuter, multicultural and international students.
