Residential Life is committed to providing an inclusive environment that embraces and values all members who live and work in our residential communities regardless of age, color, ethnicity, gender, sex, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, ability, or socio-economic background.

Residential Life strives to foster a climate where diverse views and experiences are welcomed and respected. We are dedicated to recruiting, hiring, promoting, and retaining a diverse staff who, in turn, deliver programs, services, and co-curricular experiences that enhance guest satisfaction and student success and reflect our values of diversity.

In this spirit, we will strive for a diverse applicant pool through aggressive recruitment efforts. We will maintain a welcoming and supportive learning and working environment. We will also commit to the value of constructive and continuous dialogue that will drive our efforts to learn and develop new interpretations of diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice in order to promote an inclusive environment and a diverse staff.
