About Us

Mission Statement


The Office of Residence Life is committed to providing a safe and well-maintained residential community while promoting student success.


Pillars of Value

 

Safety
We prioritize the safety and security of our residential environments by responding to the diverse needs of our population and partnering with students in the resolution process.

Residential Community
We establish welcoming and supportive environments where students develop relationships and make meaningful connections by living and learning amongst their peers.

Mutual Respect
We assist students in developing mutual respect and appreciation for the differences within themselves and others while contributing to an inclusive student atmosphere.

Responsible Citizenship
We enable students to recognize their role as members of the campus, local, and global communities who act with adult standards of behavior and positively contribute to the wellbeing of others.

Development & Growth
We foster the holistic development of our residential population through experiences meant to challenge, engage, and educate.

Education
We strive to support the mission of the University by providing opportunities for learning outside of the classroom that will enhance the overall college experience and academic excellence of our students.
