Residential Education

Educational Priority

To prepare students to be responsible global citizens.

“[T]he concept of ‘global citizenship’ -- a term that has many definitions but in general implies things like an attitude of empathy and openness, an appreciation of diversity and multiculturalism, an awareness of glob-al interconnectedness, and a sense of civic obligation to do one’s part to address global problems -- has very much been absorbed into the ethos of American universities.”
