Our Staffing Diversity
We actively recruit a diverse candidate pool for both our professional and student staff positions. We are mindful of the demographics at the University of New Hampshire, state of New Hampshire, and our staff and create a diverse environment for our students. We are aware of the impact that experiences around diverse groups have on our staff members and our students.
Additionally, we know that for some professional and student staff members from underrepresented social identities, it is important to know about resources in the area and allies around the community. Check out the personal story of one of our Residence Hall Directors here.
Our commitment to diversity, inclusion and social justice is transparent in the work we do and the relationships we nurture in the department, the university, and in the surrounding community. We acknowledge that we all make mistakes sometimes, but learn from those mistakes and the hurt they caused, and then we move forward together. We look forward to seeing the work our students do and seeing them grow in this diverse community.
Housing Office Mission
Our mission is to provide residents and University guests with a safe, comfortable, and affordable living environment that promotes learning, social interaction and personal growth; to maintain facilities, advance technology and provide services that are attentive to resident needs and concerns; and to ensure efficient and effective management of operations and resources.
Residential Life Mission
Creating engaged communities and supporting individual development are important goals, and can stand on their own. However, they also intersect and impact each other. We challenge, nurture and support our students and community through our Department Curriculum Goals: involvement, academics, social justice and healthy living. All of these goals are accomplished through active and passive programming, casual and directed developmental contact with students, and intentional supervision of resident assistants and assistant hall directors.
