Residence Life Diversity Action Statement

As a department central to the social, emotional, and intellectual growth and development of students at William & Mary, Residence Life in the Division of Student Affairs is committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse residential community, enriched by the presence and participation of men and women of different races, nationalities, tonicities, socioeconomic circumstances, abilities, ages, sexual orientations, political viewpoints, veteran status, religious/spiritual, and/or philosophical beliefs, or any other category protected by the Commonwealth or by federal law. This commitment goes beyond mere tolerance of differences by seeking to minimize attitudes and actions that have separated, excluded, marginalized, or oppressed people in the past, and facilitating understanding and recognition. These aspirations complement, in a meaningful way, the mission of the university, its curriculum, social life, and general climate. Forging an appreciation for diversity in the residence halls is a fundamental commitment, consistent with the goals of an institution of higher learning. We actively demonstrate our commitment to the success of all community members through our programs, policies, and services. Therefore, pursuant to the goals of the university, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Residence Life Diversity Action Plan Residence Life will annually review and bi-annually assess this plan and modify it accordingly.
