2020-21 Assessment Overview
The Office of Housing and Residence Life strives to cultivate a culture of evidence supporting our mission, vision, and values. In conjunction with UNC Greensboro’s strategic plan of “Taking Giant Steps” and the Division of Student Affairs strategic plan we strive to create and maintain healthy, vibrant residential communities conducive to student success.
The Covid-19 pandemic created numerous challenges as we continue to serve residential students and deliver on our promise of being a “leading residential program by providing students with comfortable and safe living environments that support academic success and promote social responsibility.”
While we were forced to severely curtail operations in March of 2020, the next five months provided our staff needed time to adjust policies and procedures, develop new ways of connecting with students, and utilize our expertise in technology to expand our capacity to meet the needs of residential students. The pandemic also provided the opportunity to reevaluate our program from the bottom up. Through carefully targeted assessments, we were able to better serve students even with a myriad of restrictions in place. We were also able to see where we could better use time, effort and resources to positively impact the lives of our students.
This website is not comprehensive of all our efforts rather it provides a brief snapshot of our yearly assessment practices and highlights. Information shared is data from 2020-2021 academic year.
