Gillette House

“I believe that one can never leave home. . . . We may act sophisticated and worldly, but I believe we feel safest when we go inside ourselves and find home, a place where we belong and maybe the only place that we really do.” “We have the brains and the heart to face our futures bravely.  Taking responsibility for the time we take up and the space we occupy.” – Maya Angelou

House Leadership

House Programming & Advisory Council

Each house has a House Programming & Advisory Council (HPAC), composed of a president and vice president who are elected as well as a public relations chair, and service commissioner, who are appointed. The HPAC meets with the faculty head of house and graduate assistant to advise on house programming and the life of the house. The HPAC works with upper-division peer mentors and professional staff to enhance inter-house, Commons-wide, and campus-wide living-learning initiatives. Elections/appointments to the House Programming & Advisory Council occurs in late August and early September.
