Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity & InclusionLiving in a residential community is an exciting and enriching opportunity, and we’re working to see that every student feels at home in a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment. We work through the values/philosophies of Social Justice, Inclusion, Diversity, and Restorative Justice to foster residential communities that encourage relationship building, personal growth, and academic success. Diversity Peer Educators and Multicultural Councils offer support and education to help all students thrive in vibrant and engaging on-campus communities.

To help promote understanding and maintain a positive and supportive environment within the residential communities, our staff and students present films, lectures, workshops, exhibits and other activities that enhance cultural awareness. Along with staff members who specialize in diversity education, each residential community also has a multicultural or minority-cultural lounge to provide a safe space for underrepresented students and to encourage growth and learning.
