What You'll Do

Student Learning

Our staff interacts with students individually and in small groups to help them learn important life skills, such as managing a new level of autonomy, confronting and resolving interpersonal conflicts, making meaningful life decisions, accepting responsibility for one's decisions and actions, and becoming a positive member of a community.

Res Ed staff members also plan and implement educational and social programs in the residence halls, which give students a chance to live and learn together. This year, the Resident Assistants are forming partnerships with faculty members to bring programs that complement specific courses into the residence halls.

For a preview of some of the upcoming Residential Education programs, please see Colby-Sawyer's online master calendar.
