Belmont University's Office of Residence Life strives to create a residential community that both relies upon and fosters:Mutual Respect
In an increasingly diverse world, it's is essential that students appreciate the value of diversity in a community. The rich residential community offers exposure to a wide variety of people, perspectives, and personalities and develops residents' regard for individual differences and their ability to participate effectively in the larger community.
Increasingly, students' success in the university and in the world beyond depends upon their ability to collaborate effectively with others. The community living experience quickly illuminates residents' interdependence and nurtures their spirit of cooperation and interpersonal skills.
Effective men and women take responsibility for the decisions and experiences that shape their lives. Residence Life prepares residents to make the challenging decisions of their collegiate and post-collegiate experiences by providing authentic choices and realistic accountability during their residency.
The desire and ability to learn in all contexts is essential to students' immediate and future success. By actively supporting residents' academic achievements and providing countless opportunities for personal and interpersonal growth, Belmont's living-learning community broadens residents' understanding of where learning occurs and how it is applied.
