The Department of Housing and Residential Life wants living on campus to add value to students' education by creating environments that are conducive to and supportive of student learning. The strong tradition of residential colleges at UM provide a valuable supplement to classroom learning as a place to enrich the hearts and minds of students, and help retain the university's best students, thus strengthening the overall intellectual community at UM, and offering a foundation on which to build residential programs of learning that have a defined educational purpose.
Establishing Student Leaning Outcomes (SLOs) will provide a framework within which Residential college staff and faculty can link programs, activities and experiences for our students to specific learning opportunities that will enhance their classroom experiences, increase faculty-student interactions, show how our practices integrate with the core educational mission of the University, and assist in our goal of achieving our mission: Student Housing for Student Learning.
Student Learning Outcomes include:
Residential Colleges (Hecht, Stanford, and Mahoney 1st floor):
Residential Colleges & Communities (Eaton & Apartment
