Creating engaged communities and supporting individual development are important goals, and can stand on their own. However, they also intersect and impact each other. We challenge, nurture and support our students and community through our Department Curriculum Goals: involvement, academics, social justice and healthy living. All of these goals are accomplished through active and passive programming, casual and directed developmental contact with students, and intentional supervision of resident assistants and assistant hall directors.
The University of New Hampshire is committed to building and nurturing an environment of inclusive excellence where all students, faculty, and staff can thrive.

We venture to sustain a campus environment that fosters mutual respect and understanding. We believe diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion are foundational values inextricably linked to achieving our core educational mission and embrace the many characteristics of our community members that make them uniquely themselves.
