Providence College’s Life Skills Program is a comprehensive progression of workshops, lectures, community activities, and campus wide events that student-athletes can become involved in over the course of their collegiate careers. Our goal is to provide programming in conjunction with various departments and services at the College that will allow student-athletes to maximize their overall collegiate experience and to help them develop the necessary “life skills” to become responsible and productive citizens in the greater societal and world communities. The Life Skills program at Providence College addresses five key areas: academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, career development, and community service.
Commitment to support the academic progress of the student-athlete toward intellectual development and graduation.
To build philosophical foundations for the development of athletic programs that are broad-based, equitable and dedicated to the well being of the student-athlete.
To support the development of a well-balanced lifestyle for student-athletes, encouraging emotional well-being, personal growth, and decision-making skills.
To encourage the student-athlete to develop and pursue career and life goals.
To encourage the student-athlete to provide service to his or her campus and surrounding communities.
