Residence Life’s Mission

Residence Life fosters a safe and comfortable living-learning community that furthers the mission of Shepherd University. We advocate for and adapt to the changing needs of students through the continuous enhancement of facilities, programs, and services. We empower students to develop as citizens through the exploration of individual freedoms, autonomy, and accountability to themselves and the community.

Guiding Principles

→ Shepherd students are the reason for our work.
We offer students opportunities to explore their uniqueness as individuals and as members of a diverse community. We are committed to helping students develop beyond mere understanding and tolerance toward greater appreciation and acceptance.
We provide innovative programs and sound policies and procedures that promote citizenship, life skills, and continuing education. Our programs and services enhance learning outside of the classroom and allow us to connect to the University’s academic mission.
We create a dynamic environment through continuous improvement. Assessed issues are systematically reviewed and meaningfully implemented.
