Residence Life Mission & Diversity Statements
Residence Life Mission Statement
The department of Residence Life works to create in our residence halls a safe and secure environment that supports the academic mission of the college, encourages individual student development, and fosters a community of responsibility and compassion. The living-learning environments that we strive to build are characterized by civility and cooperation, where individual needs and desires are balanced with the common good. By providing an enriching residential experience, we will afford students the opportunity to develop life-long skills to become contributing members of society.
Residence Life Statement on Diversity
The Residence Life Office seeks to foster living and learning communities where differences based on age, ability, color, creed, cultural background, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, race, religious affiliation or spiritual affinity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, political viewpoints, or veteran status are validated and embraced.
We believe that supporting an inclusive environment is a shared responsibility of all members of our residential community. Through our programs, services, and hiring practices, we strive to develop a community that values diversity as an essential part of personal and intellectual growth.
