Multicultural Competence Committee

Department of Housing and Residential Education’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of Housing and Residential Education is committed to fostering an inclusive work and living environment through a culture of trust, growth and collaboration.  We promote equity, education and advocacy through developmental opportunities that explore individual identity and personal growth.

Our goal is to incorporate multiculturalism into the various facets of our departmental guiding principles:

  • Staff Engagement
    • Develop and encourage opportunities for all staff to gain cultural awareness, enhance skills and increase investment in each other and the university community
  • Facilities Management
    • Maintain residential facilities that support each and every student by offering inclusive, accessible, and welcoming environments which enhance the on campus experience
  • Organizational Effectiveness
    • Promote inclusive hiring and recruitment practices that fosters a diverse work environment
    • Advocate for equitable and transparent policies and procedures in our daily practices
  • Student Centered Learning
    • Create co-curricular educational opportunities that empower students to take ownership over their personal growth and develop skills to navigate an ever changing global society

It is our hope that all members of the Carolina Community and beyond with whom we interact will join us in our efforts to create this environment.
