Student Life

Residential Education is organized around people and invests heavily in relationship building.  To advance our highest aspiration for the residential experience, we seek to leverage the individual stories of our residents towards engendering rich communities that support, encourage and celebrate the exploration of the self in complex social and cultural contexts.  The cornerstone of residential education is our belief in gathering around difference and dialogue, inquiry and reflection. Towards that end, Residential Education is led by a team of professionals and paraprofessionals who live with and alongside our 3587 residential students.
