3rd Annual Residential College Symposium

Vanderbilt University is proud to host the 3rd Annual Residential College Symposium on October 27-29, 2016 in Nashville, TN.  The Residential College Symposium offers faculty, student and academics affairs professionals the opportunity to share knowledge, build community, and advance scholarship about the residential college experience.

RCS 2016 will focus on:

  • the academic foundations shaped by live-in faculty leadership,
  • the collaborative partnerships between faculty, academic and student affairs professionals, student leadership opportunities and structures, and
  • assessment and evaluation of the residential college experience

These themes might be explored by focusing on a variety of different residential college models, including first-year, honors, and multi-year residential colleges. The symposium will also consider how current priorities in higher education, such as diversity and inclusion initiatives, inform practice and culture in residential college environments.
