The Great Lakes Association of College and University Housing Officers (GLACUHO) has a responsibility to communicate professional knowledge and standards in the field of housing and to provide for the education and professional development of housing officers. GLACUHO is concerned about the growing problem of hate crimes on college and university campuses. Such incidents are increasingly prevalent and damage the sense of community, particularly within our on-campus residential areas.
GLACUHO believes it is within our responsibilities, as housing officers, to protect human rights and to promote diversity and pluralism in higher education. Therefore, GLACUHO encourages housing officers to do all they can to understand and address the issues that drive hate crimes. Having an educated and planned response to hate crimes will sustain us in our important role of serving students.
