Our Mission

The Office of Residence Life and the Center for Student Engagement work collaboratively to provide a dynamic, holistic collegiate experience that supports the personal educational goals and development of students. The two offices strive to encourage knowledge of resources and policies; foster an open-minded campus community; implement inclusive practices; and empower students to learn and succeed in and out of formal academic settings. Both offices provide opportunities to build interpersonal connections; practice responsible decision making; actualize leadership abilities; and cultivate civic and social responsibility. The Office of Residence Life focuses on providing quality residential services including a variety of living options and programs, while the Center for Student Engagement specializes in serving the larger student body.
