The Philosophy of Residence Life
The purpose of the Residence Life department is to provide learning environments which educate students through developmental events, intentional conversations and meaningful interpersonal relationships.
Relationships: Cultivating deep interpersonal relationships
Nurturing students as whole persons (academic, physical, spiritual, emotional) through intentional events and conversations.
Particularizing: Uniquely recognizing each student
Helping students discover the unique ways God has created them, their vocations, and God’s personal calling on their lives.
Deepening: Challenging students to grow
Providing opportunities for students to be mentored and to go further in their development and maturity.
Education: Educating the whole person
Being an active and important part of the education of students at Vanguard and directing them toward a life of leadership and service.
Invitation: Inviting students into the spiritual life
Creating an environment where students are challenged to examine their lives and to pay attention to the work of the Holy Spirit.
