Residential Curriculum

USF Housing & Residential Education provides an intentional experience for all residential students through the use of our residential curriculum. Academic engagement, interpersonal skills, global citizenship, and wellness serve as the four main outcomes of the residential curriculum. The residential curriculum is present in everything we do; including intentional conversations, passive activities, active programming, community meetings, roommate agreements, and much more. The residential curriculum shapes how our resident assistant and community manager spend their time, the tasks they are responsible for completing, and the student learning and community development we hope will occur in our communities. The residential curriculum is a valuable tool used to breathe life into the Housing & Residential Education motto of "Best place to live. Best place to work. Best place to learn."
