In fall 2018, 73 percent of residents were engaged in a C.A.R.E. convo.
Through C.A.R.E strategies provided by University Housing, students who live on campus will gain competence in self-awareness and community engagement, practical competence and cultural competence.
-Kerr & Tweedy, '06
To be self-aware, students must recognize behaviors, beliefs, values and ethics within an individual’s own reality.
To demonstrate practical competence, students must manage their own affairs and demonstrate interdependence and critical thinking.
To recognize multiple perspectives, students must understand their identities and how these identities inform their interactions within their communities.
To be engaged citizens, students must be conscious of the needs and nuances in their campus, local, regional and global communities.
