FLAGS is a new residential experience developed by and for the University of the Incarnate Word. Through this experience, our students will have opportunities to explore the Five Mission Tenets of Innovation, Faith, Truth, Service, and Education, in addition to Engagement. We will explore these themes through a variety of different methods:

Bulletin Boards

Themed boards that have an educational component


Opportunities for personal interaction with residents and learn about resources on campus

Intentional Interaction

Purposeful conversations and activity between the RA and residents

Community Gathering (CG)

Bi-monthly events that focus on developing community

Got to Go Programming (G2G)

Programs where RAs bring residents to events already occurring on campus

Program of Intention (POI)

Interactive program focused on one of the themes

Building Tag-Along Event

Buildings help sponsor a preexisting program that occurs on campus and residents are strongly encouraged to attend
