The Office of Campus Life oversees Dickinson’s residential operations, student activities, student orientations and residential education. Its mission is to help students develop communities of inquiry, respect civility in discourse and actions and develop a global sensitivity. Campus Life also helps create a campus environment where students may develop a lifelong affiliation with Dickinson and with other students, build upon the concepts presented in the classroom and seek connections among people, ideas and disciplines.
Recognizing that learning extends beyond the classroom, student involvement within the residential experience creates opportunities for engaging in a diversity of academic, intellectual, personal, and social activities. Through student involvement and residential living we encourage increased levels of independence and responsibility, seek to foster responsible self governance and leadership, and collaborate on the development of a healthy and respectful campus culture. The Office of Campus Life supports student success by connecting these learning experiences through the provision of leadership and community living programs and services.
