Civility, Diversity, and Inclusive Excellence
UW-Green Bay expects that all faculty, staff, students and visitors will
treat each other with a sense of civility while in the UWGB community.
Civility is a benevolent awareness of others. Simply stated, we are
civil when we care about others and treat them well. Civility requires
individuals to utilize respect, responsibility and restraint in their
dealings with others. It also means that we expect one another to be
polite, courteous and supportive of differences in people. It is with
civility in mind that Residence Life encourages and promotes a strong
commitment to Inclusive Excellence. Inclusive Excellence (IE) is a
system-wide commitment to supporting and promoting the acceptance and
celebration of differences among people. Residence Life encourages you
to learn more about diversity, inclusion and being an ally.
If you are interested in being part of a group that plans activities and events on topics related to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression, able-ism, and related topics, talk to your RA or AC to learn more about options for involvement. We have numerous committees and opportunities for residents who want to meet and work with others who feel strongly about these issues. Many campus and building programs related to diversity are planned by RAs, residents and professional staff, who are passionate about exploring and educating on these topics. You have an open invitation to join us.
UW-Green Bay and Residence Life will not tolerate behavior aimed at discriminating, degrading or hurting people—whether physical, emotional, or indirect (notes, signs, gestures). Residents who witness or experience such inappropriate behavior are encouraged to meet with an RA or AC immediately. The resident who reports the inappropriate behavior will have the ability to be involved (or remain anonymous) in the course of action to follow. Please also note that the University has a Bias Motivated Reporting Form. Please meet with a professional staff member from Residence Life, the Dean of Students Office, or the American Intercultural Center (AIC) for assistance with your concern. Our goal is to stop all inappropriate behavior that takes away from the sense of safety and belonging that UW-Green Bay and Residence Life strive to create. Please help us in this mission.
