Mission Statement

The mission of the Residential College of UNCG is to create a home on campus where students can relate serious academic studies to communal issues and personal development. Its goal is the holistic education of all participants: staff, faculty, students, friends. In particular the program promotes transition from school to later life through student participation and leadership, through a balance of private and public values and through a tradition of fostering friendship.

The Residential College was created at UNCG in 1970 to provide a setting that encourages innovative study, small classes, unity of academic and social experiences, and close student-faculty contacts.

The Residential College is a two-year program for freshmen and sophomores with a limited number of upperclassperson participants. Members of the program live and have classes in a coeducational residence hall. A Coordinator of Residential Learning, who serves on the faculty, resides in the hall. Other faculty members have offices in the residence hall. Students and faculty serve on governing committees and participate together in special events within the dormitory.

Faculty members from many different departments and schools teach in the Residential College. Courses taught fulfill General Education Core Requirements and requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences.

All students are asked to participate in an interdisciplinary core course focusing on the American experience and to choose another class from a wide range of other academic subjects. These seminars, along with varied types of independent study and community service work, make up six to nine hours of a student’s semester course load. The remaining semester hours are taken in the University outside the Residential College. Residential College students are full members of UNCG and are expected to participate in the life of UNCG.

All students who have been admitted to UNCG automatically qualify for application to Residential College. Anyone who wishes to receive more information about the program is encouraged to write directly to the Residential College.
