Statement of Responsibility

The students and staff of Housing and Residential Life (HRL) are a multicultural community of individuals. We are of diverse national, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic origins. Our community encompasses a broad spectrum of religious and political beliefs, and our sexual orientations may differ. We are unique in that we strive to work and live together. 


In the process, we learn from one another in an atmosphere of positive contact and mutual respect. We are committed to behaving and expecting others to behave in ways that demonstrate our beliefs about the respectful treatment of each member of our community. We believe that we are individually and collectively responsible for our behavior and are fully accountable for our actions. 


We must take initiative and responsibility for our learning and awareness of the differences which exist in our community and avoid all actions that negatively impact others. We are committed to these principles which are an integral part of our purpose, values, and daily activities. 


The Department of Housing and Residential Life adheres to all Oklahoma State University policies pertaining to non-discrimination and harassment.
