One of the things that makes Humboldt State a great place to call home is that it is a supportive community based on mutual respect. Our goal is to develop a community where residents are respected and valued - regardless of their age, weight, gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, color, creed, national origin, cultural background, socio-economic status, or religious affiliation or conviction.
What part do you play in all this?
Simply put, everyone shares in the responsibility for creating and maintaining this respectful environment.
Doing your part includes: treating people from different groups and cultures as individuals; challenging your biases; thinking about the impact of your words or actions before you speak or act; refusing to participate with jokes or pranks that are derogatory to any person or group; avoiding thoughtless expression that is genuinely hurtful to others; confronting others who are speaking or acting inappropriately; and reporting incidents of mistreatment or harassment to Housing staff as soon as possible.
Bigotry, bias, prejudice and oppression have no place within our community. Join us in embracing our differences and appreciating the unique perspectives each resident brings to the Humboldt State experience.
