Special Interest Housing
The Special Interest Housing Program (SIH) at Moravian College is designed to provide direct and environmental support to the academic and extracurricular elements of the College. It is an opportunity for students to define their on-campus living experience and contribute to the greater College community in accordance with their goals, interests and pursuits. These interests generally include an educational, intellectual, or academic focus, an affiliation with a recognized campus organization, or an issue-oriented affinity.
Goals of Special Interest Housing at Moravian
-Enhancing the potential for community building among the resident population
-Providing the means for resident students to exercise a greater degree of control and responsibility for the creation of their own unique living experiences
-Increasing the breadth and depth of student engagement in campus activities
-Enriching the learning environment for all members of the campus community
-Providing more opportunity for students to develop leadership and programming skills
-Establishing a more direct link between educational/academic pursuits and the residential experience -Facilitating greater collaboration between faculty and students outside the classroom
-SIH is better suited to smaller, more self-contained living environments, such as suites, townhouses or discrete sections of corridors
-SIH requires a clear delineation of purpose, goals, and anticipated benefit
-SIH requires programmatic initiatives from the group regarding their special interest
-SIH requires the participation of a programmatic advisor and a group leader
