Since 1967, the Residential College (RC) has offered undergraduate students a
unique living-learning experience in which they benefit from being members of a
small college community with full access to the offerings and resources of a world class
The distinctive educational mission of the RC is to enable students to develop their
intellectual interests and creative talents in an environment in which they can find
their own voice and relate learning with doing. The RC faculty and staff challenge
students to take the initiative in shaping their own education, to participate actively
in classes and in extra-curricular programs, to think critically about what they are
learning and reflectively about what they are doing, and to engage with the
University community as well as the outside world.
