Residential education program
The Residential Education Program (REP) is a coordinated set of programs, primarily for first-year students, framed to signal important community values: safety, responsibility, respect and civility. The goals for the program are:
- To foster respect and civility.
- To foster an understanding and appreciation of Princeton's diverse community.
- To provide students with information about issues of concern and about campus resources.
The programs include "Reflections on Diversity," "The Way You Move," alcohol education, a sexual health presentation, a LGBTQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, questioning and allies) panel discussion and one other program deemed most appropriate by the RAs from a menu of choices.
"Reflections on Diversity" and "The Way You Move" take place during orientation in a large-venue format followed by smaller group discussions in the residential colleges. Alcohol.Edu is an online alcohol education course to be completed before students arrive on campus. All other programs take place in adviser groups in the residential colleges throughout the year.
The chair of the REP committee is Dean Michael Olin. The other members include the directors of studies from each of the residential colleges. For any further questions or concerns, please contact Dean Michael Olin at (609) 258-3052.
