Earlham College is committed to providing a safe and healthy working and learning environment for the students, faculty, staff and visitors on its campus. As of July 1, 2016, Earlham College is a smoke and tobacco-free campus.
Within the broad context of Principles and Practices the Residence Life Program is shaped by a view of residence halls and houses as learning environments. The most important learning that occurs outside the classroom takes place between students (Schroeder and Mable, 1994). The nature of the residential program is interactive and integrated to support strong community development. The priority is on student leadership and involvement. Students living out their daily experience in reflective dialogue with peers will support connections as they learn from one another. Students guiding the nature of the program is at the heart of this learning mission.
