Our core values include:
University Housing Learning Initiatives
While University Housing is dedicated to offering success opportunities for our residents, ultimately it is the resident who must respond by taking the initiative to make the most of his/her ASU experience. By accepting the responsibility to succeed, and by getting involved while living in the residence halls throughout the academic year, you should be able to demonstrate the following:
Residents can avail opportunities to help them develop a sense of self-worth; make healthy life-choices; explore values and beliefs. Residents will also have the choice to identity in a safe but positively challenging environment; engage in cultivation of ethical values; handle negative peer-pressure effectively; grow in the areas of problem solving; learn about group dynamics; expand decision making skills; develop a willingness to learn new things, and sow the seeds of lifelong learning.
Statement on Diversity (ASU Campus environment team)
University Housing recognizes and celebrates the diversity within our student body. We strive to present an inclusive environment which welcomes and values all members who live and work in our residential communities regardless of their religion, ability, color, creed, cultural background, ethnicity, gender identity, national origin, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other identity.
ASU is committed to maintaining hospitable educational, residential, and working environments that permit residents and employees to pursue their goals without substantial interference from unlawful harassment. Additionally, diversity of views, cultures, and experiences is critical to the academic mission of higher education. Such diversity enriches the intellectual lives of all, and it increases the capacity of a university to serve the educational needs of its community.
ASU is strongly committed to academic freedom and free speech. Respect for these rights requires that the university tolerate diverse and sometimes offensive expressions of opinion. These values of free expression justify protection of speech that is critical of diversity and other principles central to the university’s academic mission. The values of free expression can be undermined by acts of intolerance that suppress alternative views through intimidation or injury. As members of an institution of higher education, we must stand against any assault upon the dignity and value of any individual through harassment that substantially interferes with his or her educational opportunities, peaceful enjoyment of residence, physical security, or terms or conditions of employment.
