The UW is a multicultural community of students, faculty and staff with diverse backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, physical abilities, sexual orientations and identities. The UW values diversity and is committed to promoting:

  • Respect for the rights and privileges of others,
  • Understanding and appreciation of human differences, and
  • The constructive expression of ideas.

Everyone who chooses to live in or visit our residential communities has his/her own beliefs and must understand that acts that denigrate an individual’s national origin, race, gender, sexual orientation, heritage, culture, religion, disability or age have no place in our community. Strive to understand the individual differences of those around you, especially your roommate and neighbors. As you engage in daily activities and interactions, challenge yourself to learn from others. Give others the respect and tolerance that you desire.

What Is Count Me In?

The Count Me In campaign offers residents the opportunity to take a proactive role in their community.

By saying Count Me In, residents are taking responsibility for living in and promoting a supportive, welcoming and positive place for everyone to live. A community is only as strong and welcoming as its individual members!
