Promoting development through the living-learning environment
Our mission is to enhance the development of our students by providing a supportive and safe living-learning environment within our residence halls. We, along with our residential students, share the responsibility of creating and maintaining a positive community that is conducive to student success.
We accomplish this by promoting respect, empowering students to affect the community, advocating and adapting to the changing needs of students, and providing programs and experiences beyond the classroom.
