About Residence Life

Philosophy

The Student Development Approach serves as a guide for the Residence Life Program at Fayetteville State University. The philosophy of our residence halls is educational.  The learning environments in the residence halls support the educational mission of the institution. The Department of Housing & Residence Life is committed to providing residents with a well-rounded experience through non-classroom learning experiences. Therefore, the residential setting can and does play a significant role in the development of the "whole" student. These are the elements that contribute to a positive educational environment. This student development approach is characterized by the following:

  1. Acceptance of the belief that individuals develop in stages that are sequential, cumulative, increasingly complex, and qualitatively different. 
  2. Acceptance of the student as the principal agent for change. 
  3. A belief that the role of the residence hall staff is to assist students in accomplishing goals that they have set for themselves.   
  4. Recognition that one must consider the development of the whole individual, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
