Department of Residence Mission

Department of Residence Statement on Diversity
The University of Northern Iowa Department of Residence is committed to the diversity within our resident communities and work environments. This commitment is demonstrated by respect for individuals regardless of their ability, gender, religion, race, creed, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, national origin, color or veteran status.
Acts of intolerance are unacceptable, for they threaten each of us and the communities we share. Such incidents are detrimental to the campus environment and are inconsistent with the missions of the Division of Student Affairs and the Department of Residence.
Students and staff are encouraged to develop positive relationships and to learn about, appreciate, and value human and cultural diversity. Each member of the Department of Residence and resident communities has a responsibility, beyond mere tolerance, to respect each other.
UNI actively seeks to enhance diversity and is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. The University encourages applications from persons of color, women, individuals living with disabilities, and protected veterans. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by federal and/or state law.
