The Mission Statement
The Division of Student Affairs, as a partner in the educational enterprise, enhances and supports the mission, goals, and objective of Kenyon college as a residential college of the liberal arts. In this role, the staff of the student affairs division has a diverse and complicated set of responsibilities: to advocate for the common good while championing the rights of the individual; to encourage intelligent risk-taking while setting limits on behavior; to promote independent thought while teaching interdependent behavior.
The extent to which the College is successful in creating a climate in which these contradictory ends can coexist is reflected in how well students are able to recognize and deal with such contradictions both during and after their college experience. The Division of Student Affairs is committed to assisting students and the Kenyon community as they seek to meet the challenges inherent in balancing these complex and often competing goals.
