What is AVIATE?

In 2014, Housing and Residence Life launched AVIATE, A Vision for Integrated, Applied, Transformative Education. AVIATE is the integration of the department’s residential curriculum and the assignments process for returning students.

Grounded in our Vision for Residential Learning, the AVIATE program gives students the opportunity to clarify their personal values, mediate conflict, learn about cultures and experiences different from their own and collaborate with fellow community members to identify problems and develop solutions that serve the common good. As students engage in events that are aligned with the program and facilitated through either Housing and Residence Life’s Residential Curriculum or Campus Partner Opportunities, they are awarded PATH (Points Accumulated Toward Housing). A student’s PATH credit, in turn, determines their priority in attaining their desired housing in the Housing Assignment process.
