Nicholson Commons Mission Statement

The Nicholson Commons is the community center of the university, serving students, faculty and guests. By whatever form or name, the Commons is an organization offering a variety of programs, activities, services and facilities that, when taken together, represent a well-considered plan for the community life of the university. Traditionally considered the "living room" of the campus, the Commons of today is the gathering place of the university and serves as a unifying force that honors each individual and values diversity.
