Diversity Statement

Housing and Residence Life celebrates students and staff from all backgrounds and experiences. Our vision and belief is that through education on the multifaceted aspects of diversity, we can create respectful, accepting and open communities.

As our department develops programs, processes and policies for our residential community, we will strive to meet the following goals:

  • Our students learn and are educated about diversity and social responsibility, by living in our communities.
  • All community members have a comfortable space or venue to express their feelings, so that every voice is heard.
  • Our communities operate under the belief that there is beauty in our differences, and those differences are celebrated.
  • Our staff members will be open-minded and a resource to all students.
  • Each community member will feel welcomed, valued, and safe in their residential community.
