Student Outcomes

A Note from Martha Swift

Vice President of Student Development

The Student Development team supports students outside the classroom so that they can be successful inside the classroom. We strive to be intentional, incarnational, collaborative, and redemptive in a holistic approach to our work with students. The services and activities we oversee include personal and career counseling, health services, campus events, intramural sports and recreation activities, spiritual formation opportunities, diversity initiatives, and assistance in the residence halls. 

We want every student at Crown to feel seen, heard, and cared for in a way that will launch them to be mature, responsible, and committed lovers of Jesus transformed to spread the gospel here, near, and far. After 15 years in higher education, it brings me joy and satisfaction to hear a student share about personal transformation that happened through college experiences and relationships built in the residence halls.

I love walking alongside students and helping them wrestle with questions like, “Who am I?” “Who am I with God?” “Who am I with others?” and “Who am I in the world?” These conversations happen over lunch, while taking a walk around campus, as we sip a smoothie in the coffee shop, or while playing with my dog in my backyard. Students at Crown are an extension of my family, and I encourage, support, pray for, and hold them accountable like they are my own kids.

Crown College is special. The community here is unmatched. I can’t wait for you to be a part of it and experience what I am so proud of. Come home to Crown!
