Student Life Mission Statement

The Student Life division at Lawrence University supports and enhances the University mission to educate students in the liberal arts and sciences in a distinctive residential college environment. As educators, we cultivate a student-centered community that promotes leadership, lifelong learning, personal well-being, respect for diverse backgrounds and viewpoints, and responsible and meaningful citizenship.

Goals for the Student Life Division

•Provide opportunities that encourage students to become educated about social issues, connect student strengths and interests to respond to issues through service and promote personal reflection and awareness activities.
•Foster leadership development through community living, student employment opportunities, student government, and student clubs and organizations.
•Promote awareness and respect through programming, educational opportunities, engagement, and identity development to create a welcoming and inclusive learning environment and campus community.
•Provide opportunities that facilitate and sustain growth in the multiple dimensions of wellness: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environment, intellectual, and occupational.
•Help students become lifelong learners by engaging them in local, national, and global issues and by teaching them to apply skills learned in this student-centered community to their life beyond Lawrence.
•Create an environment where students learn to take responsibility for their actions.
