Residence Life Mission Statement

Learn. Engage. Challenge. Grow.

Our Mission is to support the Rhodes College Vision by providing a living environment that inspires academic achievement, student involvement and personal development.        

To this end, we aim to:

  • Provide a safe and secure residence hall environment for all students.
  • Offer a climate that celebrates diversity by bringing students together in a community where differences are respected and where the common goal is learning.
  • Create an atmosphere of civility, where self-responsibility and mutual respect are not only encouraged, but expected. 
  • Hire and develop a staff of student leaders who are committed to the education and development of their peers and themselves.
  • Offer educational and social programming that furthers the building of community and enriches the overall student experience.
  • Continually define and refine how we operate to meet the needs of the students we serve
