Juniper Residential College

The members of Juniper come together to program in ways that teach about and celebrate the different gifts and world perspectives of its members, using the resources of the Case Western Reserve and Cleveland communities. The Juniper crest features an inkwell and pen to signify the education and emerging knowledge base central to a student's experience at Case Western Reserve University.

One of the key components to the Juniper mission is challenging students to explore their own identities and the identities of those around them. It can help them make meaningful connections with students in multiple, concentric circles of community, as well as the university and the greater Cleveland community.

Traditions and past programs of the Juniper Residential College include the ceremonial signing the scroll, participating in the Diversity Squad, Drums of Diversity Newsletter, Writings on the wall. Juniper staff, council members, and residents also participate in programs sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, International Student Services and the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women.

By examining multicultural issues, Juniper residents are encouraged to learn more about themselves, others, and both affirm and challenge thinking about many forms of identity and the value of a multicultural community.
