b) Residential Life Mission Statement

As the Residential Life Staff, we will focus on students' needs and equip our Resident Assistants so that we may enhance the total educational experience of Oklahoma Baptist University within our residence halls. To honor the intent and purpose of the University, we will provide an environment in which the principles of Christian living are encouraged and cultivated.

Our mission is centered on our commitment to:

  • Provide the opportunity for spiritual, educational, social, cultural, and physical development through programs and publications.
  • Maintain a clean and healthy living environment through administration of building maintenance and housekeeping.
  • Develop skills in Resident Assistants which enable them to provide leadership for a community of residents.
  • Establish relationships with students which encourage growth through redemptive discipline and personal responsibility.
  • Encourage teamwork within the Residential Life staff as a whole through a shared commitment to our students and our university.
