Office of Residence Life Mission Statement

The Office of Residence Life strives to create a community which supports the academic experience by fostering the social, personal, and intellectual growth of our students through the cultivation of healthy living/learning environments.  We actively support the mission of the College and the mission of Student Affairs, and fulfill our own mission, in the following ways:

  • Providing for the developmental needs of the individual in a professional and personal manner.
  • Celebrating the diversity of the Utica College community and challenging our students to continually expand their world view.
  • Enhancing the Utica College experience for all campus community members through personal effort, clear and consistent information, and engaging programs.
  • Empowering student staff to take a role in fulfilling this mission.
  • Collaborating with campus departments in the operation of safe, secure, and well-maintained residence halls.
