Foundation for Success
The fundamental philosophy of the University residence halls and apartments is that students grow and develop while they live in University Housing. To help students achieve their personal and academic goals and become well-rounded individuals, we begin by meeting their basic needs by providing comfortable, well-maintained living environments and nutritious food. The University Housing community and its staff provide appropriate challenges and support to enable student growth and development.
Foundation for Success provides a framework for the interactions and education offered to students who live in university housing. Learning outcomes focus on the whole person and support academic success. Each student will do what they do best everyday, have strong and positive relationships, make healthy and sustainable choices, have an inclusive and engaged community experience, and make sound financial decisions. These learning outcomes will be implemented through planned interactions and educational initiatives designed to engage the student in their learning. All community members are also responsible for establishing safe, inclusive and socially-just communities.
- Each student will do what they do best every day.
