Campus Life

The Office of Campus Life is excited to work with you this academic year. When arriving at our office, please ring the doorbell to the right of the door to alert us of your arrival. We will use the intercom function of the doorbell to let you know that it is ok to come in. This procedure will allow us to ensure that we do not exceed the capacity of our small office space and prevent us from breaking physical distancing procedure.

Our Mission

Reflecting the Bates Institutional Plan, Campus Life plays an integral role in the education of the whole person, a “process through which students become aware of their interests, community, and purpose in the world.” We deepen the student experience by providing resources and opportunities to explore interests through involvement in student clubs and organizations, social events and programs, skill building workshops, and employment opportunities. An equity and inclusion lens is foundational to our work – we actively aspire to dismantle -isms and -phobias, and partner with students to do the same in their areas of influence.
