As a result of living in University Housing, each student will understand:
- To be a successful member of the SIUE community, students need the help of a network of caring people. In order to gain and keep social support students need social skills. Civility expounds the essential skills that allow us to live well among others (Forni, 2003).
- Sustainability is the ability to provide for the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability for future generations to meet their needs (World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987). University Housing embraces the triple bottom line of sustainability: healthy environments, social justice, and strong economies.
- Academic Achievement

- Student will develop a realistic self-appraisal and self-understanding; personal attributes such as identity, strengths, values, interdependence, meaningful relationships (Learning Reconsidered, 2004).
