Vision & Philosophy
Connected, informed, and inclusive residential community.
The University of North Georgia embraces the philosophy that living in a campus residence hall is an important part of the university experience. The learning that occurs through experiences in decision-making, critical thinking, and taking responsibility within the residence halls will be invaluable throughout one’s life. The following statements describe the beliefs and goals that form the philosophical foundation of the Residence Life Program:
- Encourage and respect students as emerging adults.
- Provide a clean, safe, enjoyable residential environment.
- Promote an environment conducive to study and academic pursuit.
- Increase student appreciation of different cultures, races, values, and lifestyles.
- Promote the development of healthy and meaningful relationships among students.
- Encourage self-exploration and self-challenge: emotionally, intellectually, physically, spiritually, occupationally, and socially.
- Teach life skills such as critical thinking, decision-making, communication, and personal responsibility.
- Provide challenge and support for students as they explore developmental issues.
- Encourage and promote leadership, volunteering and community service as an important component of citizenship in any community.
