Inclusive Communities

Students at a Center for Cultural Enrichment event

The University of Wisconsin-Madison values a diverse community where all members are able to participate fully in the Wisconsin Experience. Therefore, in University Housing, one of our priorities is to establish inclusive, respectful and caring communities.

Inclusion in the residence halls is achieved by all staff working in tandem to create and maintain an environment where everyone feels respected, valued, welcomed and supported. There is a feeling of belonging created because there has been a focus on the needs of each individual in order to create a culture of respect/civility.

Within this environment, collaboration and partnerships are emphasized while barriers and negative biases and assumptions are confronted and eliminated.
