Respect—We All Play a Part

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?

Each resident shares the responsibility of creating an environment in which all residents are respected and valued - regardless of things such as one's age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, color, creed, national origin, cultural background, socioeconomic status or religious affiliation or conviction.  Doing your part includes: getting to know 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; and reporting incidents of mistreatment or harassment to the housing staff as soon as possible.

Bigotry has no place within our community. Join us in embracing our differences and appreciating the unique perspective each resident brings to the Humboldt State experience.
