Our mission is to foster the academic, cultural, personal, and social development of students living in the residence halls, while encourage and supporting each others' development.  We work in partnership with other departments to continue to improve our services and to provide a safe and inclusive multicultural residential community.

To accomplish this mission, we work as academic support staff, administrative assistants, administrators, educators, area coordinators, office assistants, and student staff.

We are dedicated to:

  • Supporting the academic and educational mission of the College by providing opportunities for out-of-class learning
  • Effectively serving and working with resident students, staff and faculty of diverse backgrounds and views.
  • Encouraging students to take responsibility and challenging each other to grow
  • Providing a safe environment -- one that promotes both physical and emotional well-being
  • Connecting students to services within the college and the community at large
  • Working to create a positive, welcoming community of scholars

  • Be people of integrity; honest and ethical
  • Clearly articulate policies, procedures, and roles
  • Communicate openly and inclusively
  • Exercise freedom of thought and opinion in a spirit of mutual respect
  • Keep our minds open to new views and concepts
