About Us

Vision Statement

Through collaborative efforts and continuous transformation we seek to be a model of excellence in serving our students.

Mission Statement

Residence Life intentionally fosters communities that create a sense of belonging and provides active learning environments that enhance our students’ engagement in their own development and academic success.

Residence Life Values

Transferrable Skills

Helping students gain skills necessary to succeed during the current year, as well as in years to come; both in and out of the defined college experience.


Educating students about the campus and residence hall community, encouraging inclusivity, and creating a safe, comfortable, welcoming, educational atmosphere.


Helping students to succeed in their academics by providing education about studying techniques and available resources, by assisting them in defining their academic and career goals, and by providing support as they develop skills for their future profession.

Citizenship and Identity

Helping students to understand how their personal choices impact the larger community, how to engage as responsible members of society and how to develop their personal interests and goals.

Health and Wellness

Teaching students about self-care, helping them become more conscious of the choices that they make and the effects of those choices, helping students develop positive and healthy relationships, and exposing students to campus wellness resources.
