Educational Outreach and Student Services have two overarching goals: to provide timely response and responsive service to students and to create an optimal learning environment
Three operating principles inform routine decision making and guide daily interaction with students.
Achievement: Academic success and personal growth for each student.
Engagement: Intentional and meaningful opportunities for student engagement, involvement and participation in the broader university community.
Responsibility: Structured experiences that create values driven decisions, expectation that reinforces personal responsibility and opportunities to develop an understanding of civic responsibility.
Key learning outcomes that support the core objectives are:
- Students will excel and succeed academically.
- Students will experience and understand the intersection of academic and co-curricular life through the residential college model.
- Students will access support systems to enhance their individual success.
- Students will be involved with faculty outside of the classroom environment (undergraduate research, service learning).
- Students will apply their education and co-curricular experience in professional settings and experiences (internships, co-ops).
- Students will be engaged, educated, and empowered to influence their lifelong career development and professional ambitions.
- Students take responsibility for their own success and contribute to the success of others.
- Students will be involved in civic engagement and community based experiences.
- Students will participate in the intellectual life of the university (lectures, debates, competitions).
