Office of Campus Life Mission

Students smiling

The mission of the Office of Campus Life is to integrate students into a diverse learning community; promote their intellectual, social, and spiritual development; and, in collaboration with the faculty, prepare students for lifelong learning and global citizenship.

Campus Life is committed to providing the foundation for a student-centered environment that is supportive yet challenging. A student-centered environment is characterized by these qualities:

It’s Personal

  • We strive for meaningful relationships with students and colleagues.
  • We model civility in our interpersonal relationships.
  • We pursue opportunities for personal growth.

It’s Learning-Focused

  • We engage in reciprocal learning, recognizing that each of us is both teacher and learner.
  • We intentionally link students' educational experiences in and out of the classroom.

It’s Values-Based

  • We are guided by institutional values as we develop and administer policies, programs and services. These values include a commitment to service, equity and equal access, responsibility and good citizenship, appreciation for human diversity, environmental protection, social justice, individual freedom, and human rights and dignity.
  • We make the connections between our activities and institutional values explicit.

It’s Collaborative

  • We work across departmental lines to create and enhance university programs and solve problems.
  • We identify and consult with stakeholders in our decision-making.
  • We volunteer our assistance where we think we have contributions to make.

It’s Quality-Driven

  • We consult with students and colleagues to understand their needs.
  • We integrate services to provide easy access for users.
  • We streamline service delivery to enhance efficiency.
  • We evaluate services and programs for continuous improvement.
