UNITAS is a living-learning community dedicated to building community, tolerance and understanding among individuals of diverse backgrounds and spreading these values throughout the larger community.
UNITAS is based on sociocultural diversity and is committed to helping students discover similarities through differences. Our group actively works to challenge stereotypes and prejudice based on identities such as gender, race, nationality, religion and sexual orientation. In order to break down barriers, all residents are assigned roommates based on sociocultural differences rather than similarities.
UNITAS is sponsored and supported by the Department of Anthropology, Department of Housing and Residential Education and APPLES service-learning. Students are expected to fully engage in collaborative learning while living in our residence hall, learning in the classroom and participating in a service project for the year.
Leadership and Involvement Opportunities:
UNITAS is a student-initiated community led by the Student Coordinator and Leadership Team. This student leadership oversees all residential aspects of the learning community. This includes planning educational, service, social and advocacy related activities. The leadership team is made up of both returning and new residents.
Students accepted into Unitas express an interest living in a community whose primary focus is learning from others with diverse backgrounds. They are willing to help foster a community that emphasizes respect, tolerance and consideration for people of various gender, races, nationalities, religious beliefs and sexual orientations.
