Residential Education Program

Teaching Community Values

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 programs include "Reflections on Diversity," "The Way You Move," the AlcoholEdu module, the Not Anymore! sexual assault module, a sexual health program, a LGBTQIA educational order-in, and one other program deemed most appropriate by the RCAs 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. AlcoholEdu and Not Anymore! are online education modules to be completed before students arrive on campus. All other programs take place in adviser groups in the residential colleges throughout the year.

    Program Goals

    • Foster respect and civility
    • Foster an understanding and appreciation of Princeton's diverse community
    • Provide students with information about issues of concern and about campus resources
