The mission of Housing & Residence Life is to foster residential communities that inspire and empower student learning and growth. Live. Learn. Grow.
Equity and Inclusion Statement
Housing & Residence Life values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are committed to cultivating on-campus environments that promote a welcoming and inclusive climate for students, provide opportunities for reflection and learning, and challenge systems of oppression. We recognize that students in our communities may hold multiple marginalized identities and are impacted by intersecting forms of oppression and discrimination. Students living in residence halls who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, women, gender non-conforming, and other marginalized identities may face microaggressions, interpersonal discrimination, structural and systemic forms of oppression, and other identity-related challenges. Housing & Residence Life strives to actively combat these challenges through peer and staff support and an intentional residential curriculum to create an environment in which all students can live, learn, and grow
Housing & Residence Life acknowledges and recognizes, with respect, that the land we are on today is the ancestral homelands of the Chitimacha, Houma, and Chahta Yakni (Choctaw) Nations and peoples. http://www.ala.org/aboutala/offices/nola-tribes. This acknowledgement embodies Housing & Residence Life’s commitment to inclusion and understanding of our institutional history, responsibility, and commitment.
