Residence Life Catholic Social Teaching Principles and Outcomes
In the spirit of Catholic Social Teaching principles, the Residence Life Community will:
Handle every interaction/system/process with “dignity of the person” in mind.
- Form relationships between community members, with intentional consideration for “who is missing?”
- Educate and equip members in taking responsibility for the quality of their living and learning environment.
- Exercise our rights in a way that justly promotes the rights of others.
- Encourage community members to value everyone’s belongings and the shared community spaces.
- Adapt to technological advances, building preservation, and reducing our collective carbon footprint.
- Recognize and support our vulnerable student populations.
- Collaborate with students and staff to make sound decisions.
- Develop communities capable of disagreeing without being disagreeable.
- Empower community members to proactively contribute to the places in which they reside, always keeping the other in mind.
- Inspire residents to embody their hopeful spirit and respect the spirit of others.
