Office of Residence Life

Live. Learn. Belong.

Mission Statement:

The Office of Residence Life challenges students to expand their learning beyond the classroom with a focus on education of their whole person.  We enhance the formation of “men and women for and with others” by providing safe, inclusive, and supportive environments for students to pursue their academic interests and develop meaningful interpersonal relationships.  Our staff encourages active engagement from students in their residential communities to foster respect for differences among people and prepare for entering a global community after graduation.

The Office of Residence Life will support this mission by providing students the opportunity to:

  • Develop self-awareness regarding values, goals, and identity.

  • Identify university resources or support services as needed.

  • Learn how to make informed choices by considering the positive and negative consequences for self, others, and community.

  • Develop a passion for life-long learning through academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular experiences.

  • Learn how to live collaboratively in communities by openly and respectfully addressing challenges and celebrating successes.

  • Cultivate professional and functional skills to transition to post-Scranton experiences.
