Create a vibrant, welcoming and strongly-woven campus community which supports learning, thriving, wellness, and fun.

Community matters to our mission. We bring students together on a physical campus because the learning students do by making meaning together – in classrooms, dining halls, concert spaces, playing fields, and residences – is crucial to their growth as people and to the impact they will make in the world.


  • Connect and build a strong and inclusive community
  • Make the most of residential life; assure a residence-based “first community”
  • Deepen opportunities for student engagement and leadership development, celebration and fun
  • Invest in spaces that support connection and community-building, including Lowry Center
  • Support student, staff, and faculty well-being and build a culture of health and wellness
  • Ensure robust, integrated advising and mentoring
