Education – Critical Thinking – Accountability – Personal Growth

We want you to think critically about your role in residence and help empower you to take accountability for your actions. We encourage you to achieve your goals by learning and growing from your experiences so that you may be successful students and citizens. 

 As community members, all residents have the individual and collective responsibility to create a positive and welcoming environment for all students. It is your responsibility to report or share information about any incidents of misconduct that you are aware of, where there may be a risk of harm, a possible violation of the Community Standards, or a negative impact on the dignity of any other resident. 

The Residence Community Standards highlights the rights and responsibilities of all students in creating and maintaining a safe and respectful residence community and provides resources to guide future decision-making.
