Our Commitment to Belonging

Group of Residents with Instagram FrameBelonging means knowing that what one is doing has purpose and meaning to themselves and others. 

We within the Office of Residence Life at UMass Lowell are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive campus for all, and hold ourselves accountable in supporting all students and staff and their diverse, intersecting identities. We do this by investing in personal reflection and actions, informed engagement strategies, and equitable policies and procedures to ensure that all individuals feel respected, supported, and valued. Diversity, inclusion, and belonging are core values that we believe give us and everyone at UMass Lowell the power to engage with the world, identify challenges, and create change. ​
