Housing and Residential Education Mission Statement
Residential Education compliments the scholarship of the classroom and provides opportunities of learning and growth through educational programs, activities, and service in student residence. Our mission is to create and continuously develop a student-centered, academically supportive residential environment with primary focuses on four tenets:
- Intellectual Engagement,
- Pluralistic Community, and
- Personal Growth.
Support academic success through educational programs, interaction with faculty and staff, informal learning opportunities, and cultural discussions and activities.
Design educational programs that will enhance students’ leadership skills and emphasize the importance of citizenship. Provide educational opportunities that promote an understanding of the world and current events.
Continuously develop a community where all students feel included and free to engage in open dialogues about culture, current events, and differing opinions.
Support student personal growth through the development of educational programs, activities and service opportunities by assessing behavioral trends and needs of the community.
