Goals of the Residential College Program
The goals of the residential colleges are to enrich the intellectual, cultural, and social lives of their students and to help them develop lifelong habits of learning and responsibility. These goals are achieved because residential colleges extend the learning environment outside of the classroom, provide supportive communities, and nurture better relations between faculty and students. They also provide the opportunity to establish informal connections between students and the colleges' Fellows.
