Each residence hall is under the leadership of undergraduate staff members, who are Assistant Residential Life Coordinators, Residence Coordinators, Community Advisors, House Leaders, or Resident Assistants. These staff members work with the Office of Residential & First-Year Programs to help develop and maintain an environment that promotes academic, personal, and social growth in the residence hall.
The Residential & First-Year Programs professional and undergraduate staff seek to support students’ development as self-directed young adults able to take personal responsibility over all dimensions of their lives. Student learning occurs through students' active decision making and engagement in the campus community both in and out of the classroom. The Office of Residential & First-Year Programs challenges students to be deeply engaged based on the following four Citizenship Pillars:
Ask questions, think critically, and be creative; opening yourself to new opportunities as you pursue knowledge and self-understanding.
Own Your Experience
Design your journey, make decisions, and take personal responsibility for all dimensions of your life.
Commit to experiences that challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and examine your current perspectives, in order to expand your understanding of others and contribute to the advancement of our inclusive community.
Make an Impact
Translate your values into practice through thoughtful interactions that contribute to the life of the community.
