The Purpose of Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life believes that campus living is integral to a student’s educational experience. The purpose of residence life is to promote community development and personal growth. In choosing to live on campus, a student-resident commits to participating in an educational community; a community characterized by respect, responsibility, and opportunity.

RESPECT for self, others, and the University is the standard of conduct expected of each student-resident. This means exhibiting regard for all members of the residence community and respecting University staff, policies, and facilities.

RESPONSIBILITY implies making well-considered decisions and practicing self-management. Student-residents are expected to accept both personal responsibility and responsibility for the positive development of their living community.

OPPORTUNITY for social interaction which promotes learning interpersonal communication skills is an outgrowth of respect and responsibility. This interaction offers opportunities for learning to relate effectively with others and to live and work cooperatively as well as independently.

The Office of Residence Life believes that a community built upon mutual respect and self-responsibility enables its citizens to become more fully aware of their potential, thereby enhancing their educational experience. Student-residents who learn from these opportunities will then be prepared to respond more effectively to a multitude of circumstances. The Residence Life staff will work in partnership with student-residents to develop a successful community for all its members.

The Office of Residence Life respects the developing abilities of its student-residents. The Residence Life staff stands ready to offer advice, facilitation, and direction. We will work with student-residents so they may develop their skills and gain confidence in their abilities, rather than do for them.

Our goal in Residence Life is to work cooperatively with students who are interested in the educational opportunities afforded by campus living and are willing to be respectful and responsible. The standard and opportunities described comprise the purpose of residence life. Realizing that not all students are willing to live by these expectations, we encourage each student to make a conscious decision regarding entering into the residence community before signing the Housing Application-Contract.

The Housing application-contract will be available to admitted students beginning on February 1, 2014.
