The Office of Residential Life strives to provide a socially conscious, responsible, and empowering residential community, where students are asked to reflect and commit to being socially just for self, others, and society. The office incorporates restorative practices and non-violent communication.
The structure of the residential experience, in which students in all four classes live in the residential houses, obliges students to master the art of living cooperatively in a diverse community. Diversity of perspective is honored as well in the college’s system of shared governance among all the constituencies of the institution.
The Office of Residential Life is made up of three areas: Residential Education, Residential Operations, and Community Expectations and Housing. Each area provides specialized care for our students in regard to the different aspects of their residential experience. Together, the three areas work collaboratively to uphold the Office of Residential Life’s mission and values.
