Welcome! The Resident Assistants and I work to meet the needs of those students residing within the Cutter House throughout the year. Our residential life experience is intended to provide a safe, welcoming and fun community for each student in which they are supported in their academic pursuits, personal growth, and development as an artist and a citizen. Our staff works to accomplish this through a variety of programmatic experiences, in addition to a focus on the building of individual relationships between both staff and students.
We strive to achieve success in all aspects of that which we do and put particular emphasis on the following:
Excellence (not Perfection): The support of each student as they work to develop their gifts to fullest potential.
Community: Accountability to and participation in a diverse group of students that fosters responsible decision making, positive and purposeful relationships, and a sense of belonging at CIM.
Respect: Interactions guided by civility, integrity, authenticity, and the resolution of differences through restorative practices.
Wellness: Care for each student's emotional, physical, and mental well-being, including access to campus counseling resources.
"We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
