For the 2015-2016 academic year Residence Life is interested in designating a series of events on campus as Signature Events of the Residential Curriculum. These Signature Events are events co-sponsored by other departments, offices, or organizations on campus and the Office of Residence Life. In order to be designated a Signature Event the event must support one or more of the goals of the Residential Curriculum.  Learn more about the curriculum goals at students.umw.edu/residencelife/learning/

As part of the partnership the Office of Residence Life would work with RAs to encourage students to attend the Signature Event, promote the event on our website and in any publications created for the Residential Curriculum. For these events RAs will be asked to attend along with their residents and then facilitate some form of discussion following the event.

Residence Life is currently accepting proposals for Signature Events. The proposal form requests the following information:

  • Name of event
  • Sponsoring Office, Academic Department, or Organization
  • Contact person name, phone, and email
  • The approximate date of the event
  • The goal of the curriculum that the event best supports
  • Brief description of how the event supports the goal selected.

Access and submit the proposal form in OrgSync at https://orgsync.com/59554/forms/130212

The deadline for proposing a Signature Event is April 16.
